  • Not sure if this will do everything you want but there is a way to filter the capibility

    add_filter('acf/settings/capability', 'change_acf_cap', 20, 1);
    function change_acf_cap($cap) {
      // modify the capability required to access acf admin stuff
      return $cap;

    I don’t know if you can use this to limit access to specific features or not.

    ACF has plenty of filters, much more than many other plugins I’ve worked with. But many of them require digging around in the ACF code to find. Searching all of the files for “apply_filters” and “do_action” is a good place to start when you’re looking for something specific.
