Custom column macros on AWE 10.3.2 (Win 8.1 64-bit)?

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

I need to configure custom column macros in AWE

Manually changing column arrangements is quite the chore. I need a way to quickly change column orders in the same vein as how Adobe Suite CS 3-5 products have their custom columns (menu items).


a. I am using Win 8.1 - 64-bit.
b. Open AdWords Editor 10.3.2 

c. Keywords Tab > Columns
d. Right-click and select my column arrangement (I)

e. Right-click and select a differnt column arrangement (II)

 

I need to quickly alternate between custom column arrangement (I) and custom column arrangement (II).

 

 

For example:

column arrangement (i) - Main Search Keywords:  Qual. Score | Word Count | Clicks | Impr. | CTR% | CPC | Cost | Conv % FILTER: Display is SEARCH Impr. > 0
column arrangement (ii) - Main Display Keywords: Display Clicks | Display Impr. | Display CTR% | Display Cost | Display CPM | Display Conv % FILTER: Display is DISPLAY Impr. > 0
column arrangement (iii): etc... 

 

Where is the AdWords Editor macro command to make this happen?

I don't know of any macros in AWE, Michae, but you can try some Windows / Mac automation scripts.

Good morning, Michae T.

 

I would actually suggest that if you're interested in that sort of thing, you might want to go to a search engine and search for relevant information.

 

(Personally, I've never heard of using scripts in AWE.)

It's not in AWE per se, Theresa. One can use applications that simulate a sequence of clicks / text inputs via a third party application.

Some can record a sequence of clicks and repeat it, others can be scripted as well.

My former employees / colleagues were using them in test automation, for software applications.

Disregard the weird phrasing, please. Mobile is tricky Smiley Wink.

Why, thank you, Theresa Smiley Happy. Being lazy sometimes makes you search for solutions. Any process that can be automated, should be automated, IMHO.
