This video demonstrates how to create and edit custom coordinate systems in OpenRoads Designer.

The workflow is as follows:
1.) Copy the delivered "Seed.dty" file from the "C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition\OpenRoadsDesigner\GeoCoordinateData"
2.) Paste and rename the DTY in your project location.
3.) Edit the MS_GEOCOORDINATE_USERLIBRARIES variable to point to the new project DTY file.
4.) After re-starting, open the Select Geographic Coordinate System tool and copy existing GCS from the Library to the project DTY.
5.) Right-click on any GCS in the project DTY and select Edit Coordinate System Properties.
