Library viewer stuck at Monitoring and doesn't add new files

I want Foobar to automatically display all music files under specific directory but it seems to be stuck and it doesn't add any new files.

When I drag and drop the directory to a New Playlist it lists more files that I currently have under Library Viewer Selection.

I'm using v.1.6.4.

Does it say anything in the console?

Media Library is supposed to say "Monitoring" once it has finished initial scanning and it's indeed monitoring for possible changes.

Library Viewer Selection shows a selection you have made from a library viewer, a feature that is nowadays off by default because it has been too confusing for people.

Try selecting "Library" -> "Album List", then right click on "All Music" and select "Create Autoplaylist". You now have a playlist that will always contain all the tracks in your media library.

Thanks @Case ! It works now in "All Music" tab, it updates the list as soon as I add any new file to directory, it doesn't update in Library Viewer Selection though but it's fine, I can use "All Music" tab instead. I could swear it used be simpler 10 years ago when I last used this feature ;)
