No option to change APK signature version from V2 to V1 in newest version of Android Studio

The latest version of Android Studio (2020.3.1) does not have the checkboxes for selecting V1 and/or V2 when generating a signed APK (see attached images for comparison). Does anyone know how to change from V2 to V1 on the new version of Android Studio?

Are you using any kind of DevOps platform?

We hit this exactly problem recently so finally updated our process so the signed APK is built in CI rather than manually by our development team.

I wrote up the details https://tickett.wordpress.com/2021/08/11/building-android-signed-apks-with-gitlab-ci-cd/

Feel free to reach out for assistance. I'm sure you can configure your build.gradle and execute gradle locally too if you don't want to go down the CI route... though I would thoroughly recommend it.
