Sigil and ePub 3

I've just downloaded Sigil and the manual as a way to help me learn how to create EPUB 3 ebooks. I'm sure I read somewhere that there is a way to designate a new ebook as EPUB 3 when starting to design the ePub. But I didn't make a note at the time, and have forgotten where to find it.

Is there something one should do to when one is starting a new ebook to get Sigil to set it up as EPUB 3? If so, what?

I've searched the manual, but though EPUB 3 is mentioned several times I can't find how to ensure that the ebook will be EPUB 3.

EPUB3 by default can be chosen in Edit > Preferences > General Settings > Create New or Empty EPUBs as.

Then you can choose between "Version 2" or "Version 3".

Here is the latest copy of the manual (April 2018):

I recently went through and fixed up some typos, and brought some of the menu information up to date.
