new project missing assembly references and option for UI - VS 2017 comm 15.6.4, Xamarin

Hi, I'm new to this and I believe I am running the most up to date version of VS 2017 and Xamarin.

Creating a new Cross-Platform project, option labelled - Mobile App (Xamarin.Forms)

There is no option for selecting the UI on the 2nd screen while creating a new solution, so I'm not sure how to choose Xamarin.Forms. I don't know if this is an intentional change or not, but I can't find much in the way of documentation and the label on the right of the screen says use the native tools OR use Xamarin.Forms - this isn't obvious how to do this.

When created, the solution is missing Assembly References and won't build straight out of the box.

Am I doing something wrong here? I'd love to attach screenshots but "You have to be around for a little while longer before you can post links."

Thanks, Matthew
