How to show active ads / keywords in AdWords Editor 11

First, I'd like to comment that AdWords Editor should get its own forum. It's not an advanced feature of AdWords, but a separate application.


I've just updated to 11.1 and besides the fact that I had to reconnect all my accounts and all my saved filters were gone, when I tried to filter ads and keywords by their status, all I could see was "approval status". When I used that, AdWords Editor kept showing paused items in the "status" column, which seems to be a combination of several columns, some of which cannot be used in filters.


Am I missing something?

Status is fourth from the top, right under Default, Any and Comment. Or just type in "status=active" (without quotes).
