CD Labels with OpenOffice

One of the many things that OpenOffice is just great for is making layouts for CD Labels. Of course it’s great for address and shipping labels and many other things, but it’s also easy to set up a CD or DVD label in OpenOffice Draw. Keep in mind, you can’t open this document in Microsoft Word. But if you’re in OpenOffice, you can open a Microsoft Word Document. Huh. Eh, what does Microsoft care about OpenOffice. Microsoft Word is a monster. It used to be that WordPerfect had a big market share. It was actually a better program in DOS. Remember DOS? Sweet and simple. And a lot of people hated it. Remember WordPerfect 5.1? At least the WordPerfect 6 screen was a little bit more helpful:

DOS 6.0 Bluescreen

Now that was a good program. Fast sleek feature rich. Those were the days.

These day’s there are so many formats in which you can create a CD or DVD. You can create a regular audio CD, or you can create a Jukebox CD. With the Jukebox CD, you can fit a lot more songs on the CD. Just select a bunch of mp3’s and try it, it’s great.

So I put a bunch of songs on the CD, and made up a nice CD template for our ML-7850 CD label.
