Can't change preference to apply transitions using available media

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I'm trying to change the preference in FCP X 10.3 to have FC use available media for transitions.  According to my official Apple training materials this should be done in the preferences in the Editing tab.  That preference setting is simply not there (see attached screen shot).  Has it been moved to another location or has the method been changed in this rev of FCP?

That's been removed. Unfortunately the Apple book came out early, based on 10.0 and has much that is wrong. It is now always set to use available media. If you get an error message when you try to do the transition, it means there is not available media.
