Synonyms not updated

I had 2 catalogs containing the same keyword list. When I delete within an item for example its synonyms and export this changed keyword list and reimport it into the other catalog, the synonyms field is not updated, says, remains how it was. The "old" synonyms are still there. That seems to be a bug.

The Read Keyword List only appends new keywords - it doesn't remove anything that's already there.  Is there a particular reason you have 2 different catalogs with the same subjects?

Yes, I have. I have 2 catalogs, one is for me and the other for my friend for whom I have to organize his pictures on my computer within Lightroom. I need separate catalogs for this reason.  I don not like to have his and my pictures within the same catalog, although this could be possible. I have forgotten that the Read Keyword list only add new keywords, but never remove any keywords included synonyms.  Thanks for your answer.
When I change anything within the synonyms, I have to do this in future twice, in both lists. It is a rare case, but sometimes it is necessary.
