Adjust the cover tolerance so the top slides easily into the box, but is still held in place well enough. Lower tolerance = tighter fit.

I love your customizer and I want to make many more boxes, but could you add the option to have the text be on one end? I have a bookshelf I would like to fill with long skinny boxes, but labels on the top wouldn't be visible.

Kind of like this...

Added option to have text at end of box to the Customizer. Does this work for you?

So I am still trying to make a bunch of these for mini storage and the customizer has stopped working for me. So I am trying to edit the file in OpenScad. But I can't seem to figure out how to make the front text cover 2 lines. I am trying to get this...

39 // Front text
40 front_text = "DRYADS & TREEFOLK";

To produce this...

How do I create a second line?

Oh man, that's perfect!
