Why can't I get AR12 USB return via channels 1-2 through Capture?

I'm confused about the basic setup of AR12 and Capture, which I'm trying to get going in the simplest possible configuration.

I can successfully record AR12 tracks with Capture. When I playback via digital return, I can only hear a return mix on my AR12 headphones via USB 3/4, if I set channels 11/12 to use USB 3/4; but I can't get anything on USB 1/2 on the Super Channel. Presumably I should be able to get something on the Super Channel with the USB return selected.

I also don't see any way to configure the playback in Capture, and what it sends to each of the four return channels.

This is under Windows. I have AR12 1/2 selected in the Windows audio output settings.

So where is the playback being sent? -- what is going by default to each of the four return channels?

Sorry if I'm being dense. I have read the various manuals and explanations but don't yet understand how Capture interacts with USB returns. The Capture manual describes a Digital Return button, but that is not visible.

No replies yet, but on a hunch I used this mixer with Studio One, and magic! the playback comes through USB 1/2 and the Super Channel, as expected. So there is something odd about Capture 3 running in this configuration causing it to send output to USB 3/4; perhaps it was misconfigured by me or who knows why? I tried a range of different Windows sound configurations and other adjustments, but as I say it worked seamlessly and as expected with Studio One.
