Default Capacitive Home button issue

I have an AT&T HTC One running OEM 4.4.2

I am unable to get the capacitive home button to display the settings menu at my home screen. I have set the home button to "hold for menu and swipe up for Google" in the System Settings menu.

I am able to get this feature to work in Nova Launcher, but I cannot get the settings menu to appear on the home screen using HTC BlinkFeed. I prefer having this menu shortcut available versus having to use the settings icon. I am used to this feature being available with my previous Samsung phones.

Thank you for your help.
