How can I adjust the central meridian of a built-in projection in ArcGIS Pro? I'm using version


That functionality has not been added yet. One solution is to modify a projected coordinate system in ArcMap, then use the Save As option to store it as a .prj file. In Pro, you can import a .prj file directly or use an existing feature class.
