Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I've never had the editor make it all the way through the download. It's a shame. I'm sure I could put it to good use.
While I didn't do the whole RTF(PDF), it appears that as soon as you launch the editor, it downloads every campaign, sans deleted campaigns if you check the box under "Tools". I'm thinking I might have more success if I could download just the campaign that I plan to work on.
They offered a new version when I launched it today. Perhaps when I'm in a real patient, laid back mood I'll download that and try again.
When this has happened I just left the application open, gone on to another project for the moment and every once in awhile tried to repost again. After 5-10 minutes, or maybe an hour, I've been able to get it to work.
* Server issues have caused "communications problems" for some of AdWords Editor users.
* The issue has been identified - and work is underway to correct the problem in the very near term - if it has not been resolved already.
* Sorry for the problems, and thanks for your patience ;)
BTW, the AdWords Editor team also sent this message:
For those of you that love AdWords Editor, you'll be glad to hear that we're continuing to work on 1) fixing performance issues that some of our larger advertisers have faced and 2) adding new features that we'll be releasing in the coming months.
