Fortigate 200B - Invalid IP Address Range when trying to create

We have a Fortigate 200B firewall and we have 2 active WAN connections from different providers. This is not for fault tolerance but more to load balance traffic from some computers to use WAN1 and some to use WAN2. I am trying to create a policy route and for the source address I want to add the range 10.10.128.101-10.10.128.130. I have tried putting it in like that but I get an error Invalid IP Range (see pic). I have also tried putting in as 10.10.128.[101-130] and it show an error with what looks like an example to the side of 192.168.1.0/24, 172.16.1.1-172.16.1.20  (see pic) The version of the software I have is v5.2.10, build742 (GA). Any ideas what I am doing wrong ? I have tried 10.10.128.101-10.10.128.130 and 10.10.128.101 - 10.10.128.130 and 10.10.128.101 -10.10.128.130.

I was hoping in not having to define subnet masks to allocate the range required. So silly Fortinet for not allowing the entry of an IP Range. Even though if you add an invalid entry it shows you an example that an IP Range can be added..
You can not even add another line, you need to add all of the subnet mask entries into 1 line. Thanks for your answers, it seems that this is the only way to do for now.
