Cinema 4D Version:
I couldn't find a way to draw Text into the EditorView using the BaseDraw, even not in C++.
I thought about a way using a GeUserArea to Draw a Text, and then Draw the UserArea as a Bitmap to the View, but GeUserArea has not Method to obtain it's Bitmap.
Thanks in advance,

There is no built-in way to draw text into the EditorView (or a BaseDraw). Most people solve this sad limitation by making their own font using lines or similar.

You can draw text into a bitmap with the GeClipMap class. Draw the bitmap then with DrawTexture() into the viewport. There are some threads on the forum covering this topic.
