Bug Description

Cannot create a new eBook in the new eBook editor component.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Edit Book program (I open it separately, not within Calibre, but Calibre is also running).
2. File -> Create new, empty book
3. Title: Test, Author: Test, Language: Russian
4. Press EPUB button
5. Chose location of the file as test (no extension specified, but it is not obvious that user should specify extension: after all I already pressed EPUB button earlier, correct?)
6. Press OK

The following error gets displayed:

calibre, version 1.22.0
ERROR: Unsupported format: Tweaking is only supported for books in the AZW3 and EPUB formats. Convert your book to one of these formats first.
