    I don't know if this is a new "feature" or not, but the software won't print the sleeve without adding a huge watermark unless you buy the full version.

    Could you provide the dimensions of the marks, please? For those that was to just draw it freehand or don't have the program or whatever...

    I was looking for something like this for a CD I burned for my daughter not long ago.  Thanks!

    Excellent little applet!
    And for those of us stuck in the US without a readily available source of A4 paper, it also seems to work just fine using US letter size paper!

    One of the best programs for making sleeves.
    I might add that you can put your own images on the front that can be cropped right from the program. The text boxes are also movable and can be rotated so a track listing can be added to the front.
