"Edit Watermarks" is not available

Regardless of trying to access "edit watermarks"

a.

via the drop-down menu

or

b.

as part of the export dialog (the last choice in the watermark choice drop-down)

nothing happens - LR acts as though I didn't make the request

(based on the HD noise, I'm sure its doing some sort of search,

but doesn't find what its looking for) . . .

Note the current .lrtemplate files/definitions

still reside in the "Pictures/Lightroom/Lightroom Settings/Watermarks" folder

Possible clue:

Regarding the 2nd path mentioned above,

the watermark name choices that populate the drop down menu

are old names.

So question:

how to engage the Watermark editor /

&/or

point LR to the appropriate files?

Thank you for your response of help . . .

I stumbled upon a work-around:

empty the Watermarks folder of all .lrtemplate files.

In my case (OS-X), the folder is located at:

Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Watermarks

As a result, the editor was again available.

My approach

a. "wipes out" previously established watermarks

b. suggests the problem (which I'm still at a loss to explain)

has something to do with the preferences of which you spoke

Hi essjay,

As I understand that you are unable to access the watermark editor for the editing the watermarks in Lightroom. You can go to the Edit menu and select Edit Watermarks and select the desired watermark or create a custom one.

Also, you can refer the tutorial link: How to use the Watermark Editor to create copyright watermarks in Photoshop Lightroom

Regards,

Mohit

Thanx for your attention to my problem, Mohit.

As detailed earlier,

when I click on "Edit Watermarks,"

nothing happens -

i.e. the watermark editor does not appear.

You may try and reset the Lightroom preferences back to defaults and check if that helps. Refer: Recover catalog and images after resetting preferences in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Some advice, please avoid posting issues in very old postings. Create your own. This one is six years old, and Many many versions and many many OS versions back. Not likely to relate. Oh could be same problem, but very different cause. Also, please include your application version. Is this LrC v13.0.1 or Lr v7.0. In LrC v13.0.1 /edit/edit watermarks/ in Lr, nope.

You’ve posted to an ancient thread. It is highly unlikely that the issue described in this thread, though not impossible, is the same one you are currently experiencing. Rather than resurrect an old thread that is seemingly similar, you are better off posting to a new thread with fresh, complete information, including system information, a complete description of the problem, and step-by-step instructions for reproduction. 

 

If the issue is the same, we will merge you back into the appropriate location. 

 

Thank you!

The Edit Watermarks menu item is under "Lightroom" not "Edit". Hope that helps.

Tony,

It's under "Edit" on Windows and "Lightroom" on Macs, evidently.
