It would be great if we had more capabilities in building text-based watermarks similar to what we can do with the Filename Template Editor where we can incorportate fields from the exif to build the watermark.

My current watermarks include the year, so I am forced to create a separate watermark for each year.

If we were able to input an expression such as:   {Year Taken}, My Name    

I could have ONE watermark that would automatically show the Year the photo was taken and my name.

I doubt that Adobe would add such a feature when it is so easy to amend text in a watermark preset. Once a Year!

IMO It would take 10x longer to construct the preset as in the Filename Editor.

Not exactly.  I don't just process photos in the year they were taken.   I often re-process images years later as improvements arrive in postprocessing software.   When I export them I need to use the watermark for the year the image was taken.   I also create multiple watermarks each year positioned in different spots on images (left corner, center, right corner).  

Hence with about 20 years of work I can have 60 watermarks in the list.  

If the watermark was "intelligent", I would only need three.
