Partially Editable Records[edit]

The following records are partially editable:


  • Automatic backup of files when saving (can be disabled). Backup location, maximum number, and maximum size can be customized.
  • Undo most actions when editing records (add, delete, edit).
  • Find text or binary data, case sensitive or insensitive. More exhaustive search than the CS.
  • Batch edit multiple records with common fields.
  • Open and edit multiple plugins at once.
  • View the raw hex of record data.

User Interface[edit]

  • More consistent and organized user interface (hopefully).
  • Record counts shown in record tree.
  • Record list shows active and deleted records in different colors.
  • Custom dialog to make selection of scripts/enchantments/etc... for records easier.
  • Record list shows almost all fields for a record.
  • Record tree can be customized to show different grouping of records. Default group categories are improved.
  • Update a record being edited without closing its dialog (Apply).
  • Drag-and-drop operations are supported in more locations

Help System[edit]

  • Tooltips for most controls (can be disabled).
  • Press F1 to jump to the appropriate help page on the UESP or CS wiki (selected in options).


  • Import/export most records from/to CSV (Comma Seperated Value) files.
  • Most records fields supported.
  • Escapes/unescapes special characters (carriage returns, tabs, commas, etc...) to allow extended fields to be exported/imported.
  • Existing records are automatically updated/overwritten when importing.
  • Formids automatically assigned to new imported records.


  • Improved performance at the cost of requiring more memory (loading Oblivion.esm takes +800 MB).
  • Skyrim.esm is only loaded once per session which allows multiple plugins to be loaded at once and decreases the time of subsequent loads.

Desired Features[edit]

The following lists wanted or planned features for SkyEdit. Note that a feature listed here may not necessarily ever be implemented.

  • The ability to edit the object id or atleast show what object id your newly created items have
  • The ability to export as overwrite / new record to a new / existing mod like FO3 Edit / NV Edit.
