Step 7 – Select -WorldOptionData, -level, -levelMeta, -local data, -Players (only 1 world)

  1. It will highlight the same filename in the bottom list

Step 8 – Click the “V” button and confirm overwriting the file.

Step 9 – Copy your edited save file back to your Steam save location <something like D:\1217309647AABC19A03DC89D306A94DB to %localappdata%\Pal\Saved\SaveGames\7656119817659069\1217309647AABC19A03DC89D306A94DB

One drawback is that you are currently unable to change the player’s name.
