There is VM macro that is supposed to change [the top margin], however it has no effect on the top margin, when one wants to decrease it.
I have tried multiple values, both with and without the '-T' option.
It works on the bottom margin, but the top margin always has the same size.
Looks like the top margin can only be increased.
Unfortunately, one can not control the top margin with PGFORM macro.
