"Kover is a KDE 3 application that is targeted at making jewel
case inserts. The main interface is shown in the screenshot below.
Selecting File -> New does not bring up a paper selection wizard
as with gLabels, but instead simply clears the current design
(offering to save it first). The left side of the interface lets
you specify the label's title and contents, and the right side of
the window shows you a preview of how the jewel case label will
"As you can see, the Contents text box has word wrapping
enabled, but no automatic word wrapping is performed for the
preview shown on the right side, nor do the contents wrap
automatically for the printed cover.
"Selecting Settings -> Configure kover brings up a
preferences window with six sections. The first section lets you
choose a CDDB server and which proxy server to use to contact that
server. The CDROM section allows you to specify which CD-ROM device
to use for working out what audio CD you want to perform CDDB
lookups for, and whether the program should eject a disc in the
drive when you close kover. The CDDB files section lets you specify
where CDDB lookup information should be cached. The last two
sections let you choose default fonts for titles, content, and
spine text as well as some miscellaneous options."
