Export Only Active Ads in AdWords Editor

Hi all,

The export HTML feature in AdWords Editor is great for showing the whole overview of a campaign. However, I was wondering if there was a way to only show active ads (currently running and not paused) in the export. Does anyone know if this is possible or a solution to this? It looks a bit confusing because all ads are being shown without letting you know which ones are paused and which ones are not.

Thanks for any insight you have on this.

Here's one way. Use Advanced Search or similar to find all ads that you do not want to export (e.g. all paused ads). Delete them (just in Editor; don't post changes). Export account to HTML - ads marked for deletion will not be exported. Finally, revert changes to those ads you marked for deletion in step one.

 

Not entirely satisfying, but that's the best I could come up with, I'm afraid.
