Gliding text input - doesn't work

Supposedly, I can glide my finger from letter to letter using the Android keyboard on my FP2. It’s all setup in my preferences, but I can absolutely not get any gliding action going. Nothing happens if I try when writing a text message.

What’s wrong?

It just doesn’t work with the standard Android Keyboard (the fact, that this option is shown in the settings is nonsense). In order to use the swipe function, you’ll need to install Google keyboard or another keyboard app that supports that feature.
