Menu buttons make wordwrap text vanish.

Question

I'm using the improved DrawText to show dialogue onscreen with wordwrap, but the text disappears when I interact with the buttons on the GUI menu. Simply mousing over a button makes the text disappear, and it stays gone until I click on an open section of the screen.

function Script:PostRender(context)
	context:DrawText(self.text, 10, 10, 300, 100, Text.WordWrap)
end

Using the regular DrawText command doesnt cause the text to vanish, but it doesnt have automatic wordwrap. Is there something I can change to keep the wordwrapped text from disappearing?

Okay, I have not tried the GUI text drawing features outside of a GUI widget so I do not know if that will work.  It was really just added for the GUI.

I cannot tell what you are doing without a working example.

Made an example, open a blank project and attach this code to a pivot in an empty map.

function Script:PostRender(context)
	context:SetColor(1,1,1)
	context:SetBlendMode(Blend.Alpha)
	context:DrawText("This text starts invisible. Press escape and left click anywhere except a menu button to show it.", 10, 10, 300, 100, Text.WordWrap)
	--mousing over a menu button causes the above text to disappear again.
	context:SetColor(1,0,1)
	context:DrawText("Normal DrawText, always visible.", 10,150)
	context:SetBlendMode(Blend.Solid)
end
