Hi -- hoping that you can help me out here. I recently upgraded the catalog on lighroom. Since then, my watermarks reset to an old version, and I can't change it to the new one that i set up. This is the case even though I used the option toi update existing watermark. I had a text watermark (not a custom image) that i was using. I am using lightroom classic, with the latest upgrade (which i believe is version 10.x (something)).
10.1 is the latest, and there was a bug with 10.0 where watermarks using italics had an issue. This appears to be fixed in 10.1, but clearly older watermarks are missing from the bug. Can you try setting up a new one from scratch, rather than updating an old one?
What you describe can not happen.
ASAIK there is No option and or feature for somehow Updating watermarks. And what would it be updated to.
All the watermarks you create are saved to a folder on your hard drive called watermarks which if you are using Windows that folder is in your Username folder.
What might of happened is the font you used in the watermark might now not be allowed and they got change to some other font.
Post screen shots of an older image with your older watermark included and one with the new watermark.

I have never gone to the folders to look at the watermark, because I have only one that i use. On your other point, sounds like you are saying that if i do the latest upgrad to 10.1, then i may get the problem fixed. I will look for that update, and see if that helps.
Thanks for your help.
It's your use of Italic font. There is a bug restricting that.
Yes, i did try taking off the italic on the font, and it changed the watermark to the correct non-italcized font. thank you for your help. do you have any information on whether they plan to fix the bug on the font? not good.
I would hope they fix this bug and I would expect Adobe to do so. But when is anyones guess.
You can create the same watermark in Photoshop and save it as a PNG file and use the Graphic option for placing it on your exported images.
I too am having this issue. When I try saving my watermark, I get an error stating, "Could not update watermark. An error occurred while trying to save the watermark." I have to update it on my PC, save the photo with the watermark, then I can use the updated watermark on the mobile version. Will this be fixed anytime soon?
