To create a label, press the Edit Label button. Enter the desired text and font combinations, then press Ok. The label will be previewed. Note that lines too long are truncated when printed, including the body. If such lines are noted, either insert a carriage return (if body text) or reduce the font size to fit. As the back label and the front label are formatted the

same, there will be a 1.4 cm right margin on the preview and the back label. This is due to the smaller size of the front label (12 cm versus 13.4 cm). When the label is ready, press the Print button. The upper label is for the back of the jewel box, behind the cd holder insert. Fold the two spine labels up at a right angle to to back of the label. Remove the insert from the jewel box and place the label in the cavity. Replace the cd holder. Place the lower label from the printout in the lid of the jewel box.
