Subject: Drawing Text in an NSImage

drawAtPoint/drawInRect in NSString/NSAttributedString says...

"You should only invoke this method when an NSView object has focus."
"Don’t invoke this method while no NSView is focused."

When an image is focused, and you draw text, it'll definitely do wonky things if the currently focused view is flipped. If we can't use these methods, are we really supposed to drop down to NSLayoutManager etc etc to draw a simple string? Is there really no secret API for image- friendly string drawing? Just want to double check before I have to go invent one...
