playback device switching

I’m using 3.2.1 downloaded from Audacity website. I’m using Mac OS Ventura 13.0.

Previously with audacity, when I had it open and then put in my headphones it would immediately recognise that headphones were present and the audio would switch to it. With current version, when I put in headphones with audacity already open it doesn’t recognise them. I have to close audacity, then reopen it, go into preferences and change it from speakers to headphones. I’ve never had to do this on any previous audacity versions.

not a big problem, just a nuisance.
