SOLVED - Sensor Voltage Switching on VESC 6 MkVI?

I'm trying to connect AS5048A encoder and I would like to run it from 3v3 as is suggested for reduced noise. VESC documentation states to switch the sensor voltage from 5v to 3v3 using a physical switch on the board, but on my MkVI this doesn't exist. There is reference online to automatic sensor voltage switching on the VESC 6 EDU version but I wasn't able to find anything further. V+ on the sense port is currently outputting 5V, how do I change that?

Thanks, Matt

Posting answer here for anyone who comes across it..

From Dave at Trampa: Under motor config>general>sensors you can choose sensor port mode. Hall sensors = 5v. Encoder = 3.3v

The MKVI version has an automatic sensor voltage switch. It can also be manipulated via software,
