Ten years of Acrobat Pro watermark presets disappeared

I stupidly, stupidly, upgraded from Acobat Pro 11 to DC, and now with a deadline looming, I find that all my saved watermark settings — some ten years of different watermarks that we use — have disappeared. Wiped, I presume, by the sack of sh*t that is Acrobat DC.

I am unable to find even where my original PDF watermark settings were stored by Acrobat (somewhere in my user Library, but God knows where).

 

Does anyone know how I can locate my old Acrobat Pro watermark settings / preferences (whatever) and import / transfer them into this nightmare that is DC?

 

I'm using the lastest version of Acrobat Pro DC in MacOS 10.15.7.

 

Thanks for any help.

On Windows the watermarks are stored at:
\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\DC\Preferences\Watermark

You probably need to look for the XI folder, and copy the settings from there to the DC folder.
