    I feel like I must be missing something, but for some reason I can only add or edit A, CNAME, and MX records in the new Zone Editor. It clearly states that you should be able to edit TXT records in the documentation:

    Zone Editor - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    (unrelated note, there is a chunk in there that just says "Note: $body" that should probably be fixed, maybe my answer is in there?).

    I had to enable the old Advanced Zone Editor, which is being deprecated, in order to add an ip to an SPF record. Am I correct in thinking this shouldn't be necessary? I am on 68.0.21.

    Hello,

    The removal of the "Simple Zone Editor" and "Advanced Zone Editor" options in the cPanel UI is tentatively planned for cPanel version 72. This is documented at:

    cPanel Deprecation Plan - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    It's not possible to remove the "Advanced Zone Editor" feature in "WHM >> Feature Manager" without also disabling the advanced zone editing privileges (e.g. for viewing/editing TXT records) from the "Zone Editor" option until such time.

    Thank you.

    @cPanelMichael Thank you, that makes sense. Should the docs reflect that? Or is that actually what is missing in that $body section?

    Can you verify where you see "Note: $body" on the page? Does it appear if you clear your browser cache and refresh? I'm unable to find a reference to it when viewing the document.

    Thank you.
