Allow entering of 2048 DKIM Keys / TXT Records in to Zone Manager

Please update the new Zone Manager which replaced the Edit DNS Zone feature, with the ability to put longer TXT records in place. Can only enable a 1024 key with DKIM and Google Workspace for example at present. The recommended key is 2048, but this will not enter into the cPanel DNS Zone Manager.

You should be able to do this by adding a multi-part txt record by clicking the "plus" to add another part to the field. (TXT records have a character limit of 255, so the end result is that the record becomes multiple txt records).

Ah thank you, will use as work around for now. However could be an improvement in the UI here?

@Hooble Do you have any suggestions for how it would make your workflow easier?

If there's a limitation in one of the DNS servers that cpanel uses that necessitates this, the UI should allow longer strings to be pasted and either take care of automatically creating multiple strings split appropriately in javascript on the front end, or the back end should accept >255 and split it upon saving. Right now you paste a long key and then have to figure out by hand where it's been cut off and then paste the remainder(s), which is a terrible UI experience.
