Design should be the first link.

In the original Lulu site, I could pick my book design and cover from a link on the home page, but it seems I have to put the title of my book on the Beta home page first before I can proceed to the next stage. As a member of Lulu since 2008, sometimes, as with the book I am now writing, the Title can change a number of times before I settle on the one I want. I am sure it will be the same with many writers. Before I get to the designing stage I have to fill in the Start page, then the Copyright page, including contributors, and editors.  And this before I even get to the Design page, which in my opinion should be the first link to making my own book. Following that, I cannot, therefore, download a PDF creation guide.  How then am I supposed to know what format I should use? Perhaps I am missing something. I hope so.

Thank you for your attention

    It would seem to me, that you have to pick a Design or Dimension for your book first. Then you write it. And then you add your contributors and editors. On the Beta site, you are asked for this information first before you have even got started.
