This should be pretty simple to implement I believe.

I find myself using the right-click > "refresh catalog" command quite a lot so I think it would make sense to bind this function to a potentially single key, like F5 (which is also used in Launchy by default) for convenience.

And since KeyPirinha doesn't have auto-update database functionality (yet) this should come even more handy.

It's in my todo list with a question mark. I'm still undecided about it mainly because the design of the Catalog part of the application is, while being stable, not finalized yet.

Meanwhile and as a general rule, most of the core features are made available in the Catalog by the Internal package and are all prefixed with Keypirinha:. The one that may come handy here is Keypirinha: Refresh Catalog. It's only one more keystroke than just pressing F5 if you associate a single-letter keyword to it.

I'm closing this as this is part of a bigger picture and because this is something already taken into account. Feel free to reply though.

That's sufficient for now I guess, although I don't really like that KP closes after the command. This means that right-click > Rescan is going to be faster anyway, but thanks for the suggestion.

Really not. This is typically the match that keyboard utterly wins everytime against the mouse: Ctrl+Win+K (or whatever your config is to popup KP), press R (my keyword for the Keypirinha: Refresh Catalog item) then Enter. You can't beat that less-than-100-milliseconds action with a mouse.

You are probably right regardless but you also have to account for that after refreshing the catalog I need to press the key combination to open KP again in order to search for what was added to the catalog after rescanning.

Reopening this as things are more stable now.

Could be F5 by default as in Launchy.

@szepeviktor As the OP says and I suppose Everyone would agree on that. Plus I prefer to spare Ctrl+R for now.
