What are the options for retraining in Starfinder Society, and how available are they?
Where is this information located?
With the recent release of a *lot* of AR that will be helpful to characters I have that are past the L2 'blob' stage, there's a hope of adjusting to some of the new AR.
Thank you for your time!

If you use a mnemonic editor, you can undo 2 character levels’ worth of decisions about which class levels you took, which feats you selected, how you applied any level-based increases to ability scores, how you assigned new skill ranks, and so on. All decisions you made as a result of advancing over the previous 2 character levels you gained are undone. You then make new selections, including new class levels, feats, skills, and the like, as if you had regained the 2 missing character levels.
For times like these, when hardcover books or major rules changed are released/sanctioned, it would be nice to be able to adjust more than 2 levels at once, though.
Normally, because the Mk 1 editor is a level 5 item, your character would have to be level 4 (with no infamy) in order to utilize it. However, the Starfinder RPG Guild Guide's "Basic Purchasing Plan" boon allows access to PCs with "Tier 0" reputation, so effectively* any time.
* unless a rule/clarification is added to a future version the guide stating that access to the mnemonic editor via fame does not change the level requirements, in which case please ignore this entire sentence.

I was just hoping to retrain an ability point and found this thread. The SFS retraining options are woefully inadequate.
You can really only retrain the levels you just added? 99% of the time, that will never be necessary. The retraining that PCs need is to be able to retrain something older when they realize they have made a longer-term error that affects them down the road (that wasn't readily apparent at the time).
So...now I have to wait another 2 levels to be able to do what I wanted to do.
The mnemonic editor appears to be a "mostly harmless" (or useless) item.
