Can I use the 2018 version of 1099-misc to file a 1099 for the 2017 tax year?

I'd like to fill out the two 1099's I have to submit for the 2017 tax year and get them in the mail.  Trouble is, I only found one 1099.pdf link, and that is to the 2018 1099 form.  Will it be a problem if I submit that form?

The form metrics have not changed in several years AFAIK. 

There is actually no 1099 PDF form available for filing because the IRS requires their red ink form stock to be used (you have to print directly on it.)

Here's the 2018 form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1099msc--2018.pdf
Here's the 2017 form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1099msc--2017.pdf

Actually, the current form 1099 for TY 2017 is NOT available on the IRS website. 2016 and prior are available and 2018 - It makes no sense and obviously this is an IRS issue - but it is a problem when the governing agency doesn't have the proper forms availabe. I will contacting the IRS and/or US Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). You cannot use the incorrect form, regardless of their not being any changes it is required by tax law that the correctly labeled TY form be used. At this point, only preprinted forms from suppliers can be used to file form 1099-Misc 2017.
