AdWords Editor 11.1 was released today, with full support for upgraded URLs. You can modify your final URLs in this latest Editor version, using Replace Text tool.

Hey Igor thanks for getting back so quickly, the specifica case is that I have some thousand different ads with different urls, I would like to maintain the urls simply switching the http://www.urlname.com/landing with https://www.urlname.com/landing without change the existing url, ontly the http to https. Is it feasable?

Yes it is. Make sure you are running Editor 11.1. Download your account in it. Run Replace Text tool, as described here: https://support.google.com/adwords/editor/answer/47657 . Replace http:// with https:// in Final URL field. Post changes when ready.

Note that, even though it seems like a minor edit, it's still a change of the ad. Like any other change, it will reset stats and trigger policy review.

Downloaded latest version, followed the instructions, after clicking replace no changes are applied. (See screenshot). Do I miss something?

Have you selected the ads you want to apply changes to, before running the tool?

Oops. Indeed it doesn't work. I think we've just discovered a bug.

As a workaround, you can export to CSV, make the replacement using Excel or similar application, and import modified CSV back.

I tried this hack this morning (on the web interface) but I've got a feedback from the system that the url was not an changeble field.
