Hello, I am using keyword PLANNER (not keyword tool).  When i create a new adgroup and hit the Save to Account button, I only see my CPC campaigns that I can add to.  

 

Is this how keyword PLANNER works, ie can't add to CPA or am I doing something wrong??

Hi there, 

That's a good question. I've asked our specialists to look into this and they will be in contact in a few days.

Yes, here is the feedback i received so everyone knows that Keyword planner can NOT directly save to CPA campaigns.

 

WHAT HAS HAPPENED
 
Tudor, please know that as per the revert the keyword planner seems to working as intended. In this tool, there seems to be a filter which is allowing only the campaigns using manual CPC bidding. 
 
We believe this is because the CPA campaigns have auto bidding enabled and the keyword planner requires manually setting bids. So, unfortunately currently the keyword planner is not compatible with the CPA campaigns.
