I am having issues trying to get my adwords editor to upload or do anything. The dropdowns aren't working well anymore and when I try to post changes nothing happens.

 

Is there anyone else having this issue?

Hello Brett B !  Welcome to the Community !

 

I have tested today the AdWords editor and upload and download works. As the editor is just an application that tries to connect to the internet, my guess is that you have recently installed a firewall that blocked this application from connecting.

Try to temporarely disable your firewall or configure it to see if uploading works.

 

Also you can use the free Process Explorer app from Microsoft to see if the editor uses any network traffic or not.

Thanks for getting back with me. As of now I find that it is a mac issue because I was using it on my pc and it worked just fine, so now I am just going to do that. I think it might be having issues with my text expander app. 

 

Anyhow I appreciate your help in this matter, thanks Adrian.
