Question about back gesture and typing

Star I

Hi everybody, I have my ZenFone 10 for half a month now and I love it.

I am using gesture navigation instead of buttons and I have noticed that the back gesture is being registered also in the down area of the keyboard when the latter is opened. That means that often when I am typing a word that starts with p (or q), the swipe is registered as back instead of starting the typing of the word, which is kind of annoying.

This is by design? Is there a way to modify this behavior via settings? I would argue that it makes sense not being able to send a back gesture in the keyboard's area when it is active.

(I am using the stock gboard btw and I am guessing that may be the case for any keyboard one might be using)
