Virtual ][ (II/II+/IIe emulator for Mac) beginner issue

I'm considering purchasing a license for the (Mac OSX-based) Virtual ][ emulator as it appears to be easy and straightforward to use (as an Apple ][+) and most of it is self explanetory, but I'm having a problem getting the 80-column autoswitch function to work:

 

I type PR#3 and nothing appears to happen (but when I go to the "Quick settings"-"Show 80 column video" menu the 80 column cursor is there!) So the 80 column card is working at least. And yes, I've made sure "Soft switch enabled" is on. I've tried removing my preferences, reinstalling Virtual ][ and just about everything else. Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

I'm on a Mac running OSX 10.11 El Capitan and the Virtual ][ is set to emulate a 64K Apple ][+.
