Hi -

I'm having all sorts of problem printing with my Epson StylusPro 3880, thought it was a hardware problem, had it thoroughly checked out by a tech, printer is file, suggestion was that it is software related.  I uninstalled and reinstalled the print driver and now having different print problems.  I would like to uninstall and reinstall Lightroom and Photoshop, but without losing my settings, user-defined presets, actions, etc. 

 

First, does this sound like a pointless idea?

Second, can someone point me to step-by-step directions for how to do it?

 

I'm using an iMac OS 10.15.5 Catalina.

 

- Very frustrated.....

Without hearing a description of the problem it's difficult to tell, but I suspect uninstalling/reinstalling is not going to resolve your printing issue. However, I could be wrong. Perhaps if you could describe the issue in detail someone could help you.

I appreciate your willingness to help, but I believe it could turn into a rabbit hole. 

 

I'm not looking for help with the printing problem.  I really just want the proper procedure for uninstalling and reinstalling Lightroom and Photoshop without losing all my user-defined stuff and my libraries.

This information might help you but is applicable to Lightroom only:

Could you please check for your presets in the below location on your PC?
(.lrtemplate)
Presets or templates in the .lrtemplate format are stored at: /Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/[preset or template folder]/[preset or template filename.lrtemplate]
(XMP)
Beginning with Lightroom Classic CC v7.3, the existing presets in the.lrtemplate format are automatically converted to a new XMP preset format. After conversion, the new XMP presets are saved at: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings
(Presets stored with the catalog):
If you've enabled the Store Presets With This Catalog option in the Lightroom Classic preferences, the presets and templates files are saved at: MacHD/[catalog location]/[catalog folder name]/Lightroom Settings/Settings.
