Default Avid Control in Mixer mode to follow PT/Surface

I just got the S1 and an Android tablet a few days ago so I could be missing something basic. Replaced some aging Mackie Controllers. A second S1 and tablet are on their way!

Everything seems to be working properly except that I would like the Avid Control App to be able to follow banking and nudge by either the DAW or the S1 surface. But it does not seem to be happening, in Mixer mode. In Meters mode and I think also Channel mode, the Avid App is following the lead of either the S1 or the DAW.

In the manual, it says, under Banking: "On systems that include an S1, S3 or other Artist Series media controller, the Bank and Nudge switches on those controllers affect all connected surfaces but not the Control app (except when the Control app is in Hybrid or Meters Tablet mode in which case it will follow banking on its linked S1)."

I can confirm that the Control app is in hybrid mode: As this is currently the only tablet and S1, I dragged the surface to the right hand window in Eucon control and dragged Avid control over it, creating a linked Surface and tablet. According to the manual, this places the Control App into hybrid mode.

In summary, if the Control App is the "master" the DAW and the surface will follow, but not the reverse, the control app will not follow if it's in mixer mode.

The workaround I have to do is:
a) select a track that's within the bank that's displayed on the S1
b) Observe in the Universe display where the clicked track is
c) click in the Universe display to "bank" the Avid Control App to this vicinity

So based on this behavior I guess you can see the preferences in Eucon settings, in Pro Tools and in the Settings of the App have been set correctly...

Hope this helps.
