Hi Max C,

This might be due to the URL upgrade, as Dest. URLs are no longer supported. Could you try selecting Final URL and see if the error persists?

Hi Sumanth - good guess, I wish that was the solution but I upgraded all my URLs a while back. I'm completely stumped!

It may or may not be related, but the same Campaign is also having a problem with running Experiments, the error being "Experimenting is not supported for your current bidding option".

It's a bug in how the spell checker's red squiggly line is rendered. Only affects Macs with Retina displays, to the best of my knowledge. Fixed for the next release.

 

Meanwhile, the workaround is to turn off the spell checker, under Settings > Download and display > Spell check language.

Mac - Check!
Retina display - Check!
Turned off spell check and problem solved.
