Keyboard in the way of reading SMS with 5.0

OK...I upgraded to the new OS last night...everything seems "OK" except for texting...when I click on a new text to read, it opens with the full keyboard open and I can only read a small part of the message...the only solution is to go through several clicks to "hide keyboard"...however doing this to read EVERY text I get is going to be a major P.I.T.A. I was told I could just swipe the keyboard out of the way, but my keyboard won't swipe...have I got something set wrong? Should've kept the OS I had I guess.

Greg change your Default camera button to Keyboard. Then you can open and close when ever you want. I never could get the swipe to work with 4.7 or 5.0.
