You can force a rescan from an Obey file by using:

  Message StrongED_ExecCmds RescanModes()

However this only works if there is a StrongED view that has the input
focus. The problem here is that recent versions of RISC OS 5 support
keyboard shortcuts in the Filer.

Because of this, as soon as you click in a Filer window it will gain the
input focus and hence StrongED loses it and the command(s) sent to it
from the Obey file will be ignored.

If you can find a way to execute the Obey file from the keyboard (eg
Configure -> Keyboard) or a menu (eg StrongMen) then it will work.
