Reset a fader to default state (zero unity) in UC Surface (iPad)

I learned in this forum that you can Command/Ctrl click a fader in Universal Control in order to reset it to its default state (unity).

Is there an equivalent to this in the UC Surface iPad version ?  

If not, an option to double click the fader for unity reset would be great.  Center Panning as well.  I realize this functionality should be disabled by default to avoid accidental clicks (especially in a live environment!).  Maybe even use a "triple click" if such a thing exists?

Hi Paul,

No, there is currently no equivalent Cmd/Ctrl+click to reset the fader in UC Surface on the iPad. To be clear though, even on a desktop computer where you do have Cmd/Ctrl+click to reset the fader capability, it resets the fader to -inf, i.e. all the way down. It does not reset it to Unity. Unity is the 0dB mark on the fader, i.e. no boost no cut. There is no reset fader to unity feature in UC Surface, on any platform.

There already is a double-tap to reset Pan to center feature on the iPad though. If you double tap any channel's pan control, it resets to center.
