^_^ It's a Shadowrun thing, although other systems have similar constructs.

Where can you see that detail? Obviously the classes tab shows the class you chose and the hit points, but I've never seen anything that details which feat I took at which level. Maybe it's only visible in some systems? It isn't obvious where that info is for Pathfinder.

I've never seen this in HLC.
HLC only keeps the current state of your character, it doesn't know at what level each feat was taken.

I don't think it's available in the interface, and it could be I'm wrong about how is handled, but most games implemented in Hero Lab use Advancement elements that track your choices so that you can track what happened when, and possibly roll them back and forth. It's not going to capture non-level stuff, though, and some systems just increment the number of feats you can take rather than attaching them to a particular level or stage.

In the past, the information regarding Pathfinder is that it doesn't remember what level you purchased things. So this "Advancement Elements" are probably only used in a few game systems.

Hello folks. You are all correct. Currently, the only information you see "per level" in both HLC and HLO is the class you took at each level, and whether you chose HP or SP at those levels. Thanks!
