I recently brought Olympus’ new FL900 to go with my Pen F, and am unable to find a way to set high-speed sync. I see references to it having that capability but am unable to find the setting. Can anyone help?

Why do you want to use HSS (FP) ? Whilst looking at the manuals the FL900 is certainly capable but I can find no reference in the manual for the camera to suggest that it is capable of HSS...

As Phil says.
Browsing the flash section in the user manual for the Pen F finds no mention of HSS capability.

Edit: I did find this, though:

I't should be a setting on the flash for FP, no setting in the camera body is needed just use higher shutter speed when the flash is set for fp.

Flash modes are ttl auto FP and manual FP
