Does the editable panel macro still exist?

I'm unable to find the macro listed below which allows the user more control to edit the content and appearance of a panel. Does this still exist, and I'm only missing it?

https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/panel-macro-51872380.html#:~:text=This%20macro%20is%20available%20in%20Confluence%20Server%20and%20Data%20Center.&text=Add%20the%20Panel%20macro%20to,in%20a%20customizable%20coloured%20panel.

It is because:

This macro was intentionally excluded from the new editor and will be deprecated from the legacy editor soon.

Thanks for the fast answer. Do you happen to know why the deprecation? Or have any suggested ways of replacing the functionality?

My guess is a belief that it will improve editor performance and page rendering times. They are also reducing thier testing overhead by removing a lot of macros.

Their suggestion is to use the Info panel instead.

One of the many reasons I do not recommend the Cloud solution to anyone who has experience with the Server edition. They keep reducing functionality with the Cloud.

Thanks so much for all of your insight!

also you can put almost nothing inside the info panel macro, like jira queries. Can't put them inside the panel at all.
