  3. Select one or more line items, then click More actions.

  4. Choose the type of copy you want to make:

    • Copy without creatives: Copy the line items' targeting and settings, but not their creatives.

    • Copy and share creatives: Copy the line items and associate the new line items with the same creatives as the original line items.

    • Copy line items and creatives: Copy both the line items and their associated creatives, so that new creatives are added.

    • Copy to: Copy the line items to a different order that belongs to the same advertiser as the originals. When you select this option, you can then choose whether to copy without creatives, copy and share creatives, or copy line items and creatives. You'll also select an order where the new line items will be created. You can't copy line items to an order that belongs to a different advertiser.

  5. Select Copy without creatives to copy only the line item's settings or Copy line item and creatives to copy the line item's settings and creatives.

When you copy a line item that has already begun delivering, the new line item's default start date will be set to midnight.
