Hi there, we need to enter in a multi line TXT record, but we are receiving an error message that it only supports 255 characters, is there a workaround for this?

    Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this. Scalr DNS capabilities don't support TXT records longer than 255 characters. I would recommend you to try Amazon Route 53 for DNS zones management.
