Upgraded to 2.2.2 and playback is choppy?

Running MACOS High Sierra 10.13.4, and just updated to Audacity 2.2.2 today.

Playing back a recent recording and the playback is clean, but the visual/screen playback (what I see) is choppy and hard to follow/edit.

I’ve rebooted my MAC a few times just to be safe (used to work in the IT field but it’s been a few years now) because I know this is a frequent culprit.

I’m new to Audacity but haven’t had this type of problem, only upon first use after updating from a previous version.

Any thoughts here?

Perhaps you are zoomed in too close?
Try zooming out so that you can see the entire track (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/zooming.html). Is that any better?
