    Sorry, I found my problem. Sure enough after a week of struggling with this, I found the fix right after posting.

    I think I ran into this issue. I disabled and re enabled auto switching and auto switching no longer works for that scene. I was on 2019.4.14f1 with version 1.0.2. I updated to 2020.3.12f1 with version 1.1-preview.3 and the issue has persisted. Do I need to rebuild the scene?
