RFEM calculates all load combinations automatically according to the second-order analysis. Is it possible to deactivate this?


In order to change the preset calculation methods of the load cases and load combinations, open the "Calculation Parameters" dialog box. In the tabs of load cases and load combinations, you can individually set the Method of Analysis.

More information can be found in Chapter 5.5 of the RFEM or RSTAB manual.
