I just assigned the double tap on the screen to take me to default home screen. It works fine. I'll just have to get used to it. If not, then I'll just go back to the Pixel launcher.I tried that myself, and the Home swipe still only brings me back to the last homescreen I was on. That's the case even if I change to 3 button nav.
If I do a Home swipe gesture a 2nd time, it will sometimes bring me to my default homescreen, but that can be very finicky -- it has to be a very short swipe up from the little bar at the bottom.
