Sounds like the same editor I'm using. As a test, adjust one or two other things and see if those changes come through. The only real problems I've ever encountered was with the schematics not wanting to show up and other NPC stats. The character editor; in case you haven't found out already; will only allow you to alter yourself and Raven. For some reason all the other NPCs keep coming back with (name) not found in save file.
