# Memoir chapter page formatting

I am using the memoir class. I have a series of chapters defined, but I need to change the way the chapter title pages are formatted. In particular, by default the text "Chapter X" is spaced a couple cm further down the page than the top line of text on other pages, but I need it to be the same. Also, the page number on those pages is in the center of the footer, while I need it to be in the top corner like every other page.

Is there a simple way to make these changes?

Got it. To fix the page numbers:

\makepagestyle{newchapter}
\copypagestyle{newchapter}{simple}
\aliaspagestyle{chapter}{newchapter}


To fix the top margin:

\makechapterstyle{custom}{%
\chapterstyle{default}
