Well, as I said, it is used to replace any occurrence of $(WATERMARK_COLOR) within the SVG file. So if you replace the actual color with those letters then darktable will use the color selected in the watermark module. Same with the font and text. The variable names of those are mentioned in the tooltips of the settings. > Cheers, > Kev Tobias > On Wednesday, 14 September 2016 2:32:17 PM AEST Tobias Ellinghaus wrote: > > Am Mittwoch, 14.
