Unchecked iTunes songs appear on printed covers Apps
I just created my first CD insert using iTunes 'print' command. A very nice insert. However, to fit my playlist onto the CD, I had to un-check one song. After printing the cover and buring the CD, I noticed that the unchecked song is not on the CD (expected), but appears on the insert (unexpected!).

So if you want your iTunes cover to match the music actually burned to the CD, you'll have to remove the unchecked songs from the playlist first.

I figured it would be like that...

The Covers are based on the "PlayList" not what is actually burnt to the disk, so everything that is on the playlist (checked or not) appears on the cover...

That's a good warning. I didn't see any easy way to do a smart playlist (if on playlist <playlist to be burned> and song name (this is the column that checkboxes seem to be in) is not checked.) Anyone?

Couldn't you just make a smart playlist with "if on playlist <playlist to be burned>" as the only condition and then tick the checkbox that's labelled something like "only checked tracks"? I can't test this because I left my laptop at home today (kicking myself for that right now).

Yep, you can create a smart playlist that matches the playlist of interest and check the "Match only checked songs" option to filter out the unchecked songs. Thanks for discovering a useful purpose for that option. :-)
