Summary0031719: Functions: draw_text_ext() does not wrap on all standardised break-able whitespace characters
DescriptionWe have had a number of reports that draw_text_ext() does not wrap on long strings of Asian characters where there typically is no space character in the string. Currently, this function requires a space character or manually adding a \n before it will wrap (and this is documented as being required). However, there are a list of standardised "break-able" whitespace characters which should be supported for this, which would avoid users having to write their own custom mid-word wrap functionality.

See the table on the page and in particular the values in the "May Break?" column.

Expected: All characters which are listed as "yes" should actually cause draw_text_ext() to immediately wrap your string.
Steps To Reproduce1. Installed the attached font.
2. Start GMS2 and import the attached project.
3. Run it for any platform
4. Observe each line of text goes off the right of the screen, none of them wrap.
