Well, I remember that I used Nero when I had Windows and there was a Cover  
editor in it which is not included in the Linux version. It was very  
practical to use since all the song titles and information was already  
entered before burning, so you had them automatically in the cover  
designer as well. Just create a song list and drag it to your preferred  
size and the font automatically adapted so everything fits in the square.  
Then you could have different fonts, colours and things like that for each  
column, like song number, title, info and time. Unfortunately there was no  
way to let a long title continue on the next row, but it was very quick to  
make a song list that worked in most cases.

But I don't use Nero anymore anyway and I don't even use CDs, so don't  
worry about me (I was not the guy who asked the question, I only replied  
to it).

Kind regards
