I don't know how long this problem has been in existence. Just today i tried to copy a display ad from one ad group to another but instead of getting copied to another it was pasted on the source ad group.

 

Hope Google is already working on the issue.

Hi StructuredPPC,

 

Have you tried using AdWords Editor to do it?

 

I use Editor more more than the UI for moving things around accounts like this and haven't had this problem before.

It may work. I just alerted other optimizers and advertisers about the problem.
