Unhappy Date updating when adding books (and overwrite duplicates)

When using "Automerge added books if they already exists", and choosing "Overwrite existing duplicate formats", the book's files are overwrited, but... what about the "Date" and the "Modified" fields? Calibre makes not changes on it, and I think it must be modified, not?

The date field is the date when the book record was created and as such is not going to change when auto merging. I'm fairly sure last modified changes, though you may have to restart calibre to see the changes.

Are you sure? I just tried adding a book and the "Modified" field remains with the same date. Then, I restart calibre, but I didn't see any change.

Depending on how you have dates displayed you may not actually see a change. For example, if you create the book record today and then auto-merge later today and the column is displaying only dates, it will not change.

Yes, right. But I'm doing more: I'm using order sorting by "Modified" (this is why I really want the date was updated), and the updated book didn't move in the list after and before the new adition.

Hover your mouse over the date, the tooltip will show you the full value, including seconds.

I tried this, and it didn't work. I activated full date-time in Preferences - date format - gui_last_modified_display_format. The showed date was '2012-08-07T09:24:34'.

Then I updated the book (it was 13:55:00), restarted Calibre, and the 'Modified' colum date was still '2012-08-07T09:24:34'.

What do you mean with this? It was a bug and you solve this?

And... thanks you very much for your interest.

PD: Sorry, I found what you mean: "Update the last modified column record of a book, whenever a format is added to the book". So it will be solved in next revision, I think, right?
