Windows 10 tablet keyboard swipe not working

I have found that when editing an AirTable database now using the Windows 10 app the swipe ability of the on screen keyboard (that I can use with most other apps) is turned off, so that I have to enter the text of the note by tappng each key individually. Has anybody else found this? I the swipe functionality of the Windows 10 enables much quicker text entry and I would love to be able to use it with the notes of AirTable.
