I would like to change all my:

example.com/widgets/page1.shtml
example.com/widgets/page2.shtml

landing page URL's into:

mysite.com/red/page1.shtml
mysite.com/blue/page2.shtml

in other words, page1 and page2 stay the same but the domain changes as does the directory name. Is there a quick way of doing this in an ad group or is it all paste and save?

You can use the 'find and edit ad text' tool to accomplish this.

It should be a simple process since you're just doing a find and replace.

Just make sure the check the new info before accepting the changes.

streplace should be able to do that. It's very easy to use and can replace strings based on regular expressions and in many dirs etc.

Does the tool do this find/replace in keyword-level urls as well, or just ad-level urls?

where is the search and replace function/tool in AdWords? I must be blind as I can't find it anywhere.

Found on the Campaign Management Tab > Tools.

Options listed:
Find and Edit Max CPCs
Find and Edit Ad Text
Find and Edit Keywords

If your urls are contained within ads, then you can use the Ad Text tool, otherwise I'm not sure there's a Google tool that will change keyword-level destination urls.

I have to change both display URL and, of course, the landing page URL for 400 ad groups under one large campaign.

sounds like paste and save is my only option! :-(
