Somehow the on screenkeyboard swipe only work for modern apps only, like the old EDGE. 

Does the chromium edge needs to be compile in a special way to make the swipe keyboard work? 

Edge is so unreliable on touch screen but the onscreen swipe works while New Edge is great on touch screen but the swipe doesnt :D

Thank you @uccoffee for your feedback. We are looking at ways to make the tablet experience on the preview channels of Microsoft Edge better. I will bring this feedback back to the team.

@Elliot Kirk Not only this but, using the surface pen and tapping a text input box for Chromium Edge (all builds) does not invoke the on screen keyboard at all.
