Is the method you're talking about done via the 'add files' (or shift+A) way, which I've not used previously? Or how do I use the Edit Metadata dialogue to do this?
No. You first create an Empty book entry as you have been doing. Then select that entry and hit the Edit Metadata dialog and add the file from there.
Having said that if you do not already have a book entry I think you can still add one of these files via Add Books option.
