# How to change the distance from the top margin and chapter title?

How decrease the distance from the top margin and chapter title only of the title page, keeping the margins of the following pages unchanged. Also, how to narrow the distance between the title of the section and the title of the chapter?

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage[brazil]{babel}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage[Glenn]{fncychap}%Sonny %Conny %Lenny %Glenn %Renje %Bjarne %Bjornstrup
\usepackage{geometry, calc, color, setspace}%
\geometry{a4paper, headsep=1.0cm, footskip=1cm, lmargin=3cm, rmargin=2cm, tmargin=3cm, bmargin=2cm}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Characters}

\section{teste}
\lipsum \lipsum
\end{document}


I've already looked at a lot of questions and all the answers change not only the first page, but all of the following, as well as changing the format of my title!

You could do something like this. You set the tmargin value to where you want your chapter title placed and then use the \topskip to set where the rest of the text will start.

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage[brazil]{babel}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage[Glenn]{fncychap}%Sonny %Conny %Lenny %Glenn %Renje %Bjarne %Bjornstrup
\usepackage{geometry, calc, color, setspace}%

\geometry{a4paper, headsep=1.0cm, footskip=1cm, lmargin=3cm, rmargin=2cm, tmargin=1cm, bmargin=2cm}
\setlength\topskip{2cm}
\newcommand\newchapter[1]{\setlength\topskip{0cm}\chapter{#1}\setlength\topskip{2cm}}

\begin{document}
\setlength\topskip{0cm}\tableofcontents\setlength\topskip{2cm}
\newchapter{Characters}
\section{teste}
\lipsum \lipsum
\end{document}

• Are you sure that it is necessary to change TeX lengths instead of just using the geometry package? Some people would consider it bad style. – TeXnician May 29 '17 at 14:55
• @TeXnician \newgeometry and \restoregeometry does not work in this case. – Georg May 29 '17 at 15:01
• Sorry @Georg, I corrected the question! I want to decrease the distance! – fsbmat May 29 '17 at 15:01
• Hi, @TeXnician, i want to decrease only a little distance! – fsbmat May 29 '17 at 15:04
• @fsbmat I changed it. – Georg May 29 '17 at 19:10
