    • Desktop tool Copy and Paste keyboard shortcuts SEEM to work but don't.

      When copying and pasting items, such as keywords, ad groups, etc. with the ctrl c and ctrl v keyboard shortcuts seems to work (screen/window flashes/refreshes), but then nothing happens. The paste doesn't actually work.

        • MAI8 - Persistent settings per research tool

          In v7, the user can set permanent settings per tool, eg "only show exact match type for keyword performance searches". In v8, you have to "customize" before every search and this is quite frustrating. The option to set defaults would be great. When doing a "Keyword Performance" search, I often use specific settings. Having to set these for every search is taking too much time! Thanks :)

          • Bbilling statement report does not have dollar amount

            When running a "billing statement" report, it does not contain the actual dollar amount that was invoiced. This information is important for tax filing purposes. For those of us with many accounts, it is a very time consuming task to download each PDF invoice and add the amounts. This report would give us a good way to reconcile our actual invoices totals.
            It would seem that one of the main components of a "billing statement" report should be the amount billed.

              • Allow Live Virtual Models on the Landing (Home) Page

                Please allow live virtual models like http://www.livefaceonweb.com/ or http://www.spokespersonwebsite.com/ on the landing page. This is 2012 and I understand 10 years ago why they were not allowed but the policy needs to change with the times. Having a live model on the homepage has made my bounce rate go down and I get 10% more conversions now on my website because of it. I was told they were not allowed to move as the page moves but today peoples bandwidths are much higher of course so the experience is great for the user. Many fortune 500 companies use live models…

                • Would it be possible to add a small photo as part of my ad?

                  My products are more recognizable visually than by description. (1" sq would do).

                  If this option were acvailable to PPC customers it would give them an edge over the organics which in turn should make it more valuable to be a PPC customer which benefits you. (+ Google doesn't have it)

                    • Desktop tool - Provide multiple destination URL editing criteria when importing from AdWords via the API

                      Sometimes several different changes either additive ("and") or exclusive ("or") need to be made to URLs being imported from Google into AdCenter. Allow for multiple criteria to be specified.

                      • Desktop tool synchronization with server is malfunctioning or extremely confusing.

                        When synchronizing with the server, the Desktop tool regularly prduces unexpected results. When working in both the UI and Desktop tool (because neither one works well enough to rely upon solely), I recently attempted to delete 400+ negative keywords and upload 700+ replacement negative keywords via the desktop tool, but had difficulty getting the match types to load properly. Thus I went to the UI and used the campaign settings page to do this. After completing this in the UI, I returned to the Desktop tool to sync. After syncing all seemed well.
                        Then this morning I look in the…

                        • Desktop tool Negative/Excluded Keywords multiple entry feature needs to support Match types

                          This new Excluded keyowrds tab is nice, but it is either malfunctioning or doesn't support the entry of Match Types with a separate column. Add this separate column just like AdWords' AWE. So that it's easy to add Phrase and Exact Match Type negatives.

                                • Campaign Experiments - Split Testing of Bids, etc.

                                  Campaign Experiments was introduced in AdWords last year and is incredibly valuable. It allows several forms of split testing traffic, but most importantly, you can bid two different amounts on a keyword and see if statistically significant differences emerge. I believe there is potential for bidding differently in the two platforms, but without experiments, it is difficult to test and so I generally just run experiments in AdWords and apply changes everywhere. The ability to test in AdCenter would be very valuable.

                                      Create an options tab to set defaults for Traffic, Monetization, etc tools. I have to go through and manually change them each time. In the last MAI we could set the options once and be done.

                                      • Allow the newest Desktop Versions to Work on XP

                                        It looks like the newest versions of the Desktop require Vista / Windows 7 or Windows 8. I am on a mac and use parallels so I can access it, and I have a virtual machine running XP. Please do not make me upgrade my OS just to use this software. I really want a desktop app for the mac... but we have been asking for that for 2 years now. So please either give away Windows 7 or 8 to us users or do not force us to upgrade or better yet, create a mac version.

                                        • Desktop Assumes the Language of My PC's Operating System (I want to Choose the Language))

                                          When Desktop is Downloaded, I am allowed to choose the language that I would like Desktop to function under. I chose English...and Desktop assumed the interface language of my PC's OS: French.

                                          Very frustrating to have to learn the esoteric French terms for match type, etc.

                                          I know this situation effects a small priority of Desktop Users. But in our world-wide economy, it would be nice to be able to choose the interface language for Desktop.
