The text for the selected option on a combo box does not show up if the text has been placed fully outside of a containing widget. As in this example the combo box has been moved via render translation so that it is outside of the overlay that contains the combo box. This results in the text for the selected option to appear removed.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the editor
  2. Create a new widget blueprint
  3. Add a combo box to the designer tab
  4. Add an element to the "Default options"
  5. write "One" into the text field for the default option (index 0)
  6. Write "One" into the Selected Option text field
  7. Add an over lay to the designer tab
  8. Place the combo box in the overlay
  9. Set the render translation for X for the combo box to a value that places the text fully outside of the bound of the overlay

Result: The text disappears
Expected: The text would be rendered when outside of the overlay (to match the rest of the combo box)
