Hi Remco

thanks for your feedback

yes, I'm talking about the tags or keywords that we have in digikam as 
well as in XMP

the problem is that when I unset the tags from DXO , XMP reflect this 
(no more tags in the XMP sidecars) , but the tags I still visible in DK
I have also set the "unify read and write" in the metadat settings and 
the option the read/write metadata in XMP
