Creating interaction terms in Smart PLS 4

How can I change the interaction term creation approach in Smart PLS 4?

In Smart PLS 3 it was possible to choose between 3 approaches to create the interaction term for moderation effect tests: Orthogonal, Product Indicator and Two-Stage. However, Smart PLS 4 does not show an alternative and there is no way of knowing what approach was used to create the interaction term.

SmartPLS 4 is now always using the two-stage approach because it has been found to be equal or better than the other approaches in simulation studies.
