Is it possible to save a file in a previous version of RSTAB 8 or RFEM 5?


No, this is unfortunately not possible.

If you save the last version of your model in RSTAB or RFEM, it is done in the currently used version.

However, you can also open RSTAB 8 files in RSTAB 7 and RSTAB 5 files in RFEM 4. Please pay attention to the notes in FAQ004112 in the link below.
