Hello all. Did Google update the way creating display ads work? I tried to make new display ads but I can't seem to select only the sizes I want. I can't see the boxes beside the ads in the preview that I used to tick to select the sizes.

Hi @Jannah A,


Recently Google Chrome stopped supporting Flash Contents in a webpage. Following this, AdWords also stopped supporting Flash Ads. This is the reason, you can't create Flash Ads anymore in AdWords Ad Gallery. Now all such ads are in HTML5 which unlike Flash ads fit into any screen size perfectly. Hence, you don't actually need to exclude any size.


This is the reason there's no option for selecting particular size(s) now.
