The Google Ads Liaison, Ginny Marvin, confirmed a bug when editing ads within a draft or experiment campaign. The Google Ads team is working on a fix, but Ginny provided a workaround. The workaround is to pause an ad, then edit that ad, and then re-enable the ad.

Ginny said on Twitter, "We've found a bug when editing ads in a draft/experiment campaign. A fix is in progress, but in the meantime a workaround is to pause an ad, edit, & re-enable."

The issue, as reported by Julie Bacchini, was that with RSA, responsive search ads, Google would not let you have more than three RSA ads in an ad group, even if some were paused.

Update: This is now fixed as of January 18th:
