How would I get
\maketitle to not add any vertical space before the title? The memoir manual (p.65) says:
The \maketitle command puts the title at a particular height on the page. You can change the vertical position of the title via the length \droptitle . Giving this a positive value will lower the title and a negative value will raise it.
"at a particular height" probably means that this depends on a number of factors, such that it is not the same in different circumstances. But how would I go about finding out exactly how much it is in my case? Is there any better method than trial and error?
