To use:

Simply navigate using the tabs on the side to edit all aspects of the saveword. ‘Raw edits’ directly edit game variables that are stored in the saveword, this is a very powerful tool and can modify all aspects of the saveword (including questlines, characters, companions, etc.) but be warned that incorrect edits here may lead to broken quest lines. Please backup before attempting to edit
