(Please download the versions modified on December 27, below.)

This is an export configuration for software Mp3tag. Due to its RTF format the users can easily edit/modify/decorate the results before printing.

It aims at producing multi-page 12 x 12 cm front covers for CD and DVD data disks of MP3 files.

The output should be printed out by a word processor. There is a 12 x 12 cm page border on each printed page that helps the user cutting out the covers for her/his CD/DVD.
Such a small scrip of paper may be handy for MP3-players, too.

There are separate configurations for A4 and US-letter size printing papers:

rtf_AlbumListCover_MultipageEurope.mte
rtf_AlbumListCover_MultipageUS.mte

The output contains the following id3 tags:
artists; album title; year; info on the mp3 quality;
number of tracks; playing time; and size on the CD/DVD.

The total of the later data are given for the whole CD/DVD at the end.

See the attached snapshots, too.

The resulting rich text document contains the FOLDER NAMES, too, as hidden texts. If you wish to include the folder names into the printing, pls. issue a "select all" command in your word processor, open the format font menu, and clear the "hidden" attribute.


COMPATIBILITY AND TESTING:
Only RTF code appearing in the 1997 Rich Text Format Specification occurs in the script. Accordingly, the result should be compatible with all recent word processors.
I tested it by Microsoft Word 2003 and by the very old Microsoft Word 6.0. (The latter one, being older than the 1997 RTF specification, does not show the 12 x 12 cm page borders.)

I used Mp3tag versions 2.37a and 2.39 in the tests.


See the attached mte scripts, README.TXT and snapshot, too.

Is it possible to align the playing times?

These export configurations were slightly improved. Among others, there is a placeholder with text "Write your title here" on the top. (Since MP3Tag opens the resulting RTF file by the default word processor and the user can easily rewrite/modify it.)
