Hi everyone, 
I'm building my portfolio site via Adobe Portfolio, with the Andreas theme, and I failed to find a way to change the width of masthead text & masthead title. 
All you can do is set the margins of top & bottom - not right and left, nor can you set different width. 
It doesn't look good. 

Has anyone managed to solve it?

Try a different Theme. You have a dozen to choose from.

Well, other themes have other downsides...

I want the name of the project to appear next to the image, not on roll-over. 
That's why I chose Andreas.

I am having the same frustration with the theme limitations (in my case I'm using Hegen) with the masthead title. I simply want it aligned left with the other site elements, but there's no option for this. Other themes have the masthead title come right up to the left margin, but they don't have other features of Hegen that I seek. I gather there's no way to change this, right?

See my screenshot.

1. Click on your Masthead Title and then click on the pencil icon to edit.

2. In the Masthead Title toolbar, select STYLES.

3. Scroll down to the ALIGN boxes -- left, center, right.

4. Repeat for Masthead Text.

 

Does that help?

To put this another way, I added outlines to block level elements from my browser's developer tools.  As you can see from my screenshot below, the masthead-content box has a maximum-width of 700px. So no matter what you do, it will never be flush left on wide screens.

Under masthead options you can click Masthead and choose text container. Here you can change the max width og Masthead Title and Masthead Text.

I was having this same issue and did not understand Anders' comment at first so here is a visual if anyone else still needs one. Screen Shot 2021-12-09 at 12.43.28 PM.png
