Is there something wrong with the adwords Display ad builder today?

Is there something wrong with the Adwords Display ad builder today? or is it slightly updated? I am not able to edit the image ad by changing the position or re arranging, Can't select only some of the ad sizes and finally when i add it to the campaign it shows only one ad for me and also its preview is not working. Have someone else noticed?

 

Pardon me if it was some stupid mistake from my end Smiley Indifferent

Hey guys,

 

I have information on this now but it's not great news unfortunately.

 

1. It is no longer possible to specify ad size after creating the ad (apart from for one static template). (This means that metrics per size will no longer be available).
2. In addition to this, the number of templates has been reduced, especially for the 'scan my website' function.

Hi Jithin,

 

You aren't alone on this, I've seen a few advertisers report it from different locations now. Let me see if I can get some information on what's going on for you.

That was a wonderful tool anyway and i really don't understand why they decided to limit its functionality. Might be some update or something else coming up to make it better. (Let's hope so)

Thanks for the info Scott. Please share if there is any more updates on this..

Hey ScottyD,

So even though we are not seeing metrics per size is the builder creating all sizes and showing them?

Hi Clint,

When you go to preview the ads you should see a list of all the sizes that it's going to publish. From here you can untick the sizes that you don't wish to have ads created for.

When I preview it shows me all the ads but there is nothing to tick or untick next to the ads like before? I can either save or cancel, only choices?

So we are getting one set of metrics for all ads showing.

I'm not sure what's going on there Clint, I'm getting the following -

But you are correct, one set of metrics for the group now.
