Save family as previous version

It would be really nice to be able to save a family as a previous version.  There are so many things we've created in Revit Arch 2012 that we can't use when an older drawing comes up again.  I know we should upgrade the .rvt to the newest version, but that's not how it works where I work.  In my backwards company we do things the hard way, so for people like us, it would be nice to just save the .rfa as Revit Arch 2011 or 2010 etc. even if some of the stuff doesn't transfer, the attributes would.

No, it is not possible in Revit to save as a previous versions, and it will probably stay like that forever.  It is recommended to keep the subscription active. In the US, it can be around $700+ a year, and for that money you always get the new version, plus, I have read here, that the subscription gives you access to two older versions, as well, if you need them.

Hi Darren I am under subscription and downloaded most of the applications there for 2012 and I did not see the command to save back in Revit. Please Could you tell me which file do I have to download?


Thanks Alex
