Hi @Viktor,


I don't think there is any documentation as such, but AdWords Editor does a good job of covering most features these days. The only exceptions I can think of are:


  • Shared negative keyword lists and shared budgets are two things that come to mind that can't be configured on Editor.
  • I'll always set up audience related work in the live interface as some aspects of the feature aren't available on Editor.
  • I also prefer to handle most reporting related work on the live interface.

There might be some other differences that other members can highlight for you!

Editor does in fact support HTML5 ads:


It would be impossible to maintain a list of all features Editor does *not* support, as new features are added to AdWords at a good clip.
