Bug on Adwords Editor 12.0.4 - Left Column with Adgroups don't refreshes after Replace Text use

Hi, 

 

i am using Adwords Editor 12.0.4 and i have noticed a bug that makes things difficult on big changes on an account. 

 

When i copy and paste an Adgroup (or more) and then use Replace Text feature to rename it, the job is done but on the left column with the Adgroups it doesn't change the name. After that if i go and change the adgroup name manualy, the left column list refreshes normaly.

On the screenshot below i took the 2 Adgroups with Mykonos and copy pasted them. After i used Replace Text to change Mykonos to Santorini. The adgroups names changed on the right, but on the left remained Mykonos. Then i renamed manualy the "Crucero Santorini Islas Griegas" and the name changed on the left too...

I have disconnected and connected my account, i have restarted Adwords Editor multiple times, as the pc too but i am getting the same issue again and again. 


Any suggestions?

Yes, looks very much like a bug. I was able to reproduce. We will look into this, should be able to fix it for the next release. Thank you for your report.

 

Meanwhile, once you get into this state, one way to get the account tree to refresh is to run Check Changes. Another is to close and re-open the account window.
