I've created a new CRS on QGIS but I assigned a wrong name mistakenly to CRS's name. Now I have the CRS defined but the name of the CRS is wrong, or not easily identifiable.

I was wondering if there's a way to delete CRS or just customize them?

Thanks for your help

I guess you have set up a Custom CRS. You can edit, rename or delete them using Settings -> Custom CRS.

Don't forget to click on the diskette symbol to save these changes.

The answer was right in my face. I can edit they, by pressing the arrow to right and left. And then I've clicked on the save (diskette) button to save my edits. Thanks for the fast reply. – Ycavazin Apr 23 '13 at 12:41
