lightroom 5.3: printing a single image with watermark - when moving image (because of other aspect of print) left or right the watermark moves much more in and out of printable area. preview is rendered correct, save to file and printing brings both wrong result with shifted watermark layer image.
only when image is not moved the preview and print/file export looks the same.

Just run into exactly this problem in LR6. If you select "Zoom to Fill" and the image aspect ratio is significantly different to the print aspect ratio, then you can drag the image around inside the print frame to adjust the print composition. While doing this, the screen image shows the watermark in the correct place (ie it doesn't move as you drag the image around). When printed, however, the watermark is shifted and thus is either cropped at the image edge or inset too far, depending on how far you have dragged the image.

You can work around the problem by cropping to the print aspect ratio before going to the print module, but it's somewhat inconvenient. The real problem is that the preview doesn't alert you to the problem.
