I would love to know who the geniuses are that are coming with the user interface requirements for google apps. This Ad Manager beta is just another app in a long line of apps that is an enormous pain to use and try to figure out.
Apparently, billions of dollars do not equate to easy to use applications. Microsoft's stuff just crashes all the time. At least I have an easy time figuring out how to use their crap before it crashes. I'm not sure which is more frustrating...
While I wait for our account rep to respond, has anyone been able to get the custom ad size option to work? I've been trying 600x250 but their system just keeps rendering 300x250.

I am very much aware of what beta means. Beta means the app is basically ready with the assumption that certain features may not work at all or may not work properly. My comments stand as well as my question. If others are having similar issues with the custom ad size, I wanted to know before continuing to waste time with it.
Didn't see this anywhere in the beta app but my account rep told me that custom sizes are not applied when a standard adsense block is shown instead of a paid advertisement. This may present UI formatting problems if I match the page for a custom size but the inventory runs out and standard adsense is shown. It appears that Google tries to find the closest match in size.
