New Phone 2 - Swiping up doesn't bring up apps

I might be missing something. When I swipe up from the bottom of the display, it doesn't bring up my apps. I haven't changed any settings. This is new out of the box (i.e. it's not like it was working then suddenly stopped). I have a ton of Android phones and several with Pie on them... so I'm familiar with how it normally works. If I go into Gesture settings and turn off "Swipe up on home screen button", I can go back to the pre-Pie navigation (with the previous screen arrow on the left... the home button in the middle, and the app switcher on the right). I can't get to the app drawer by swiping at all if I enable the new gestures. I tried this on my Pixel... and I can swipe up from the bottom with either selection... one just enables the new gestures while one uses the old. Can anyone help me with this?

To open app drawer on Razer Phone you have to swipe up from the dock but not from the bottom screen as other phones
