Hi Ralph,

You cannot use the Ad Preview Tool (Tools > Ad Preview and Diagnosis) on paused ads. What I'd recommend instead is taking a look at it in your Ads tab:

1. Click on the campaign the ad lives in
2. Click on the Ads tab
3. In the top left corner of this table, make sure you are looking at "all" ads or "all but removed" ads, not "all enabled"
4. You should be able to see your ad by looking through your list!
