Interstitial ads

Create a new file

To create a new interstitial ad, select New File from the File menu. The Create new file dialog will open.

In the Create new file dialog, do the following:

  1. Choose Interstitial as the ad type
  2. Select the ad environment that you want the ad to run in. Google Web Designer supports DoubleClick, AdMob, and  AdWords environments. You can also create a Non-google file with no environment code if you wish
  3. Set the orientation. Choose Single if you want the ad to display in only landscape or only portrait mode (for a website, for example). If you want to create a different layout depending on the orientation (for a mobile phone, for example), choose Dual
  4. Set the dimensions for the ad size. Common sizes are listed in the dropdown list. If you want to use a size that isn't listed, select Custom from the dropdown, and enter the width and height manually
  5. Choose a publish size. Choose Default to publish with dimensions of the ad. Choose Match ad slot size to let the ad resize to fit the ad slot. This lets you use similar sized ads in similarly sized ad slots without needing to republish
  6. Give the ad a name (required). This is the name of the HTML file
  7. Choose the location where you want to save the file.  Enter the path to the location, or click the search icon to navigate to the location you want
  8. Select the animation mode that you want to use initially (you can switch at any time). Quick mode lets you animate your ad scene by scene, while Advanced mode lets you animate individual elements on their own timeline
  9. Click OK
