I'm fairly new to QGIS. I have a world map, standard WGS84 with 10 degree graticules (see map).

How do I "shift" the whole map over just 10 degrees to give me a complete world map with a solid (unbroken area) Russia?

See red line on map.

enter image description here

I don't need the size or anything else to change, I just want it to be centered 10 degrees over.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • I'm sorry, but I absolutely do not understand the instructions given by the "duplicate" question's answer. The writer mentions "delete the first layer", and to which I say "which layer is that?". Where should the text file be placed? I know how to find the Text delimited layer, but not sure how to add the file? I don't know if my version of Qgis (QGIS 2.18.14) is giving me different options, but I'm not seeing any of the prompts. – Daniel Jan 25 '18 at 10:39
  • I think you should add your problems as a comment to the linked answer. Anyway, I suggest to look into gis.stackexchange.com/questions/123038/… for your russia cut issue. – AndreJ Jan 25 '18 at 13:53
