I am having a similar problem exporting a Text Preset.  When I am creating it, there is a horizontal line that cuts it off and I can't move it so the whole letter is inside the area.  I had to make an image of the Signature to be able to have it complete, but I would like to be able to use the Text option which has such a nice drop shadow.  I am using Lightroom Classic and Photoshop CC with last updates. Thank you very much!

Ever since upgrading to the latest version of Lightroom Classic, the watermark is cut off at the top (specifically, the copyright symbol).  It looks fine on the preview before the export, but cuts off on the actual image.

Since last update am having similar problem (LRC 11.4.1 on Win11) with signature clipped on right side. Works fine if I change to Arial or other default font, but not with the one I want (Windsong). Image attached. I remember this happening once before in an update several years ago. Anyone have a fix?

I ended up rolling back to the previous version. I'm hoping they'll fix it with the next update.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't want to have to do that, but it looks like the only alternative for now.

One alternative is to create a PNG file (with transparency) in Photoshop and your 'Signature' text.

Then use this PNG file as a "Graphic" watermark in LrC. You have none of the problems that have long plagued the "text" watermark in LrC.

The advantage of a text layer in Photoshop you can use all 'Blending Options' to add some fanciful adjustments for - Stroke, Shadows, etc.

Example- Text in Photoshop:

2022-07-07 09_22_33-Untitled-1 @ 66.7% (Signature, RGB_16) _.jpg

A Graphic watermark on an image:

Thank you so much, Rob.  I was trying to figure out how to do that the other day.  I'm just learning Photoshop, although I've used Elements for years and I couldn't figure out the transparency.  I found a video on YouTube and got it done successfully!  Now I can update Lightroom.  I'm grateful for the help!

Thank you, Rob. I have created PNGs in the past, but have specific reasons to use font based watermarks. Good idea, though, in any other circumstance.

"but have specific reasons to use font based watermarks."

Could you be more specific?

In Photoshop you can use ANY installed font in your system to create the 'text' in a PNG Graphic.

Lightroom-Classic has (especially in the past) had trouble using all fonts as 'Text' in the watermark editor.

Same thing happening for me! I need to be able to change the color of the text/font based upon the photo I'm exporting. But upon exporting, LR Classic cuts off portions of my Text that are outside the box in the editor...see screenshots.Screen Shot 2022-07-28 at 10.28.53 AM.pngScreen Shot 2022-07-28 at 10.30.31 AM.pngScreen Shot 2022-07-28 at 10.30.31 AM.png
