Where can the encoding bit rate be adjusted on Toast 20?

The classic mode allows bit rate changes under encoding. The updated mode does not (unless I haven't found it). I purchased Toast 20 PRO because of the customizable chapter menus. 

I have a 1hr47min vid I am trying to burn as DVD. In the updated mode, toast makes my disc requirement 5.85GB and it is too big for DVD5 single layer DVDs.

In the classic mode, toast makes disc requirement  4.22GB simply by adjusting the bit rate and I am able to burn a playable DVD on a single layer DVD. 

ROXIO why would you not open this up on the PRO VERSION??? If I am missing it, could you please point it out. I've been through you user manual. I do not see the option.

The option to auto fit is not available, which is a worry. It was working on a conversion for a complete day only at the end to say it wouldn't have enough space. I would have thought this warning would be caught at the start of the process?

Is there any support for this product - I don't seem to be getting any help/feedback?

I have saved the 'example.disc' toast file and noticed when opening it in a text edit it contains the following.

If I change these will it sort the issue?
