I created a white text string with a dark shadow in the LR watermark editor. When printing to a jpg file, the shadow did not appear although the text appeared correctly (flat - no depth). I then tried to print to a printer, selecting a PDF printer in the printer dialog box (MacOS 10.14), the shadow appeared correctly in the pdf file. I tried various combinations of printing options, and decided there is a bug in printing watermarks with shadowed text to a jpg file (print to file). I printed the image to a pdf file, imported to photoshop, the saved as a jpg file to get around the problem.
Latest version of LIghtroom Classic (2020) as of 2020/02/11.

Hello Lance,

Lightroom doesn't have a version called '2020'. Could you please go to Help>System Info... and get us your installed Lightroom version number? (likely 9.2)

I can duplicate this behavior in Lr9.2 and macOS 10.14.6

Watermark in watermark editor


Print to JPG


Save to PDF in print module Printer Menu

As you can see there is a shadow in the "Print to JPG" but it is not the correct size/offset/opacity. In the "Save to PDF....." it is the same as in the Watermark Editor.

To add to the above comment, the actual paper print has the correct Watermark shadow so the issue is only for "Print to JPG"
