Re-scan for controllers while Ableton is open

If a keyboard gets unplugged or my bluetooth goes out of range, I have to close and open Ableton again to get the controllers to work. Is there a way to get Ableton to re-scan for MIDI controllers while it's open? I'm on Live 8.

    On Windows, it helps to make sure you disable the MIDI ports in Live before you re-plug the instrument, then re-enable the midi ports.

    However, I don't think the MIDI protocol had envisioned hotplugging.
