Ads cannot be edited in Adwords account

Some Ads cannot be edited in Adwords account AND new ads cannot be added either using +Ad button. I am now editing old inactive ads and enable them. Is there a limit to the number of ads in a campaign?

Hello,

 

You may have reached 50 text ads per ad group ( enabled or paused) , a limit explained here :

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for the prompt answer. How do I add new Ads and link the address to existing ads which I have re-enabled in MCC. It can't be done and it seems like a bug to me...

The last person who said in the forum that he  reached an account limit , he solved the problem by contacting phone support as they can deal with account specific issues :

Maybe I didn't explain this well enough. I have three ads on a campaign. One of them is 'frozen' and I cannot add new ads by using the +Ads button in my MCC account.

Furthermore, I cannot add extensions (address & phone) to the other ads in the adgroup. Why is that?

Some else posted a similar issue yesterday.

Yes, those could be AdWords Express ads , as Petebardo explained here :

No. No express accounts. Never used one. Just normal Adwords. It now got even more interesting. I tried editing the 'frozen' ad in 'pause' mode and then it worked. HOWEVER, when enabling it again, the address was GONE!! This was done in the original account now - not the MCC. Does anyone perhaps have a clue what is going on here?

Really interesting. Never had similar problems. Only with dynamic ads.
Are you using PLA's?

No PLA's either Mvarga, these ads are only on the search network. But what they do have in common is that they all have location extensions. In fact, so far it appears that all those with location extensions does this.
