Is it possible to save .mlapp files that competible to a previous version of MATLAB?

I've created a app in 2018a, and now I have to work with a 2017b version of MATLAB. When I tried to open the .mlapp file in 2017b, it warns me that this is created by a newer version of MATLAB. Is it possible to save the files in a different way or to work through this problem?

Yup! Here are the steps:
  1. Open the .mlapp in appdesigner in R2018a.
  2. Go to the "Save" menu at the top of appdesigner.
  3. Select "Save Copy As..."
  4. In the "Save as type" field at the bottom of the save window, set the type to "MATLAB R2017b App".
You should now be able to open this new file from R2017b.
