    Since you can essentially make these bulk edits in AdWords Desktop editor I wonder if they will soon be dropping the editor all together.

    I used the editor myself to make changes most of the time, even small ones. Interesting to see the move but I think you are on the right track – they may drop support for the editor in the future.

    I don’t think I like the idea of losing Editor at all.

    Can’t wait! I do actually prefer the web interface to Adwords editor (except when it’s reeeeealy slow), so if the same functionality can eventually be incorporated online I’ll be so happy to have everything in one place :)

    As others suggest I use Adwords editor for bulk editing. The editor is always needed as it can be used offline and I’m not connected 100% of the time. One point that is imporant to note with bulk changes. When you make changes to any elements within an ad you lose all the performance data related to that ad. You *Might* find it more beneficial to use the bulk editor to replicate ads first then changing the copies in order to leave the originals with their related data in tact. You can hide inactive ads from being displayed within the online interface keeping your campaigns clean and easy to read.

    Exactly my thoughts, Jerry. It didn’t really make sense why they would build this into the interface. After thinking more about it, I realized these changes will probably be added to the Adwords API, giving more functionality to agencies who are building their own tools.
