Google AdWords Editor 1.3.0
New:

- Hide sections that don’t apply to selection in edit panel
- Open edit pane in new window
- Add accounts, campaigns, and ad groups to account tree
- Jump to the first error, warning, and info

Google AdWords Editor 1.2.0
New:
Hide empty repeated fields in editing panel:
- Some entities have large numbers of similar fields, but only a few are filled out. Editor used to show all the fields at all times, which caused a very tall editing pane and a lot of scrolling to get from field to field.
- Now, Editor automatically hides empty fields or sets of related fields whenever the selection changes. Click the arrow at the bottom to expose additional fields.

Add/remove labels syntax in CSV import:
- In order to update labels on an item via CSV import or “Make Multiple Changes,” the complete set of labels had to be specified.
- You can now add or remove labels while keeping all your existing labels:
1. Add the “+" in front of your label names to preserve any existing labels.
2. Add the “-” in front of your label to remove it, while preserving the other labels.

Image names:
- In Google Ads, images may optionally have names associated with them. Editor now shows names for images downloaded from the Google Ads account.
- In Editor, when you add a new image from a file on your computer, the file name is used as the image name for that image. That name is uploaded to your Google Ads account, along with the image data.

Maximize Conversion Value for search campaigns:
- The Maximize conversion value bidding strategy is now supported for Search campaigns. Keep in mind, the “target ROAS” field of that strategy is not allowed and should be left blank.

Discovery campaigns:
- Full support for Discovery campaigns is now available. This release includes support for single image (multiple asset) Discovery ads.
- The image carousel is NOT yet supported.

Universal App Engagement (UACe) campaigns:
- Full support for Universal App Engagement (UACe) campaigns is now available.

Search for errors:
- You can now filter for items marked with a specific error. You can see errors by selecting Violation in the filter bar.

Shared negative keyword lists:
- You can now apply your existing negative keyword lists in the Shared Library within Editor. This new feature makes it easier for you to share your negative keyword lists across accounts.

Updates:

Frequency caps for Video:
Two changes to frequency caps for video campaigns:
1. Only per-campaign caps are supported. Per-ad and per-ad group caps have been deprecated and are blocked by the API.
2. Up to 6 caps are allowed, one for each combination of {impressions, views} x {per day, per week, per month}. Previously, only two caps were supported, one for impressions and one for views.


Google AdWords Editor 1.1.0
New

Dark mode:
- With dark mode, you have the option to switch the UI appearance in Google Ads Editor from a light color palette to one with darker background colors and lighter foreground colors. Users can switch Google Ads Editor to dark mode by clicking the moon icon in the bottom right corner. Similarly, users can switch back to light mode by clicking the sun icon

IP exclusions, full support for IP exclusion criteria enabled:
- You can download, upload changes, add, delete, edit, copy, paste, export, and import IP addresses when you create a new campaign. In Settings, you can enter IP addresses to exclude them from seeing their ads. Previously, in Google Ads Editor, you couldn't update, add, or copy IP exclusions.

Image picker to choose images for various image fields:
- Previously, if you needed to use the same image in multiple places, you had to repeat the steps to upload the image from your computer.
- This new feature lets you browse images for various image fields and choose from previously uploaded images. You'll still be able to add images from your computer.

Exact search:
- To improve search functionality, the exact search feature provides more specific search results when filtering campaigns or ad groups in Google Ads Editor. This feature is enabled by default.
- For example, if you're looking for campaigns or ad groups on “dog accessories” and start typing “dog acc," you'll get search results like “dog accessories for corgis.” Previously, when searching for “dog acc,” you would have seen potentially unrelated campaigns, like “dog bed” or “dog apparel."

Checkboxes in accounts manager:
- Accounts manager shows checkboxes next to accounts, to make it more explicit that multiple accounts can be selected and opened together.


Updated

"Include Display Network" for Shopping campaigns is editable:
- You can now edit this setting for Shopping campaigns. Previously, it was always “Disabled” and couldn't be changed.

Universal App campaigns renamed:
- The Universal App campaign type is now "App - Installs." Universal App ads are renamed "App ads for installs." Later when Google Ads Editor supports UACe, it will also have "App - Engagement" and "App ads for engagement."

Deprecated:
- To simplify the Google Ads Editor experience, the following features and functionalities are marked deprecated with the release of Google Ads Editor v1.1.

Destination URL:
- Final URLs are replacing destination URLs as part of the URL upgrade. You can no longer create or edit ads that use a destination URL.
- Destination URL has been removed from all ads and criteria. Sitelinks and app extensions still have Destination URLs, since they exist in live accounts.

Dynamic Search Ads:
- Regular Dynamic Search Ads (DSA) have been deprecated. Note that these are different from the expanded DSA. You cannot create new DSAs. You can remove existing ones and edit their status and labels.

Responsive ads (previously known as DRA):

Custom rules updates:
- Custom rules now apply to all campaigns, including all enabled, paused, pending, or draft campaigns. However, custom rules won’t apply to removed or finished campaigns
- Your audience list must have at least 1,000 active users. If your audience list has fewer than 1,000 active users (updated from 100 active users) and you want to use it for a Search campaign or ad group, your ads won’t serve against this list until more active users are added.
If your expanded text ad doesn’t include a second description and a third headline, you’ll be reminded to enter them to help improve your click-through rate (CTR)
- Your tracking template must use the HTTPS protocol. If your tracking template uses HTTP instead of HTTPS, you’ll be reminded to update the tracking template. Using HTTP in the tracking template can disrupt your click measurement and redirect systems

Bidding updates:

- Target cost-per-acquisition (CPA) if one exists.
- When you create a new Search campaign in AdWords Editor using an account that is conversion-tracked, and you don’t set a bidding strategy, your new campaign may default to using the Target CPA bid strategy (if a recommended Target CPA is available)

Along with Target CPA bidding, this version of AdWords Editor also supports:

- Target return on ad spend (ROAS) bidding (at the ad group level)

Enhanced filters:
- Previously, when filtering campaigns or ad groups in AdWords Editor, whatever you entered in the search box is exactly what AdWords editor would search for. For example, if you searched for New Campaign, AdWords Editor would search for campaigns or ad groups that contained the entire phrase

New Campaign:
- In the new version of AdWords Editor, the search function has been improved, allowing you to get more specific when searching for campaigns or ad groups
