Using Override Gantry Length

When adjusting a portal's gantry length or repositioning its masts, the masts and gantry are locked together, as shown below. So whenever you change gantry length, the mast positions are changed accordingly, and vice-versa.

However, it is possible to adjust the components independently, using the 'Override Gantry Length' checkbox.

Useful info: If you need to know how to create a portal first, see here.
