I'm not sure which character editor you are using, but in any case keep in mind that editing an exported character is different from editing a saved game. If you edit the character himself, as an exported character or a character you created from scratch at level 1, you won't see the changes in the saved game. That means you should probably be editing the character from within the saved game.
And I just noticed that every sentence in this post ends with "saved game".
