How to adjust the door on a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ

Hello. I am new to the Jeep Wrangler Forum. I just purchased a 1995 Jeep Wrangler SE YJ with a hard top. I found out later it is a Steel Horse...too bad. I am trying to adjust the roof and doors as it has large air spaces. I was able to move the door latch pin which allows the door to fit tighter to the roof. But when I close the door it has to move up to shut. Someone told me I should be able to loosen the torque screws on the door hinges and readjust where it closes level with the door latch. Something about there should be slots behind the hinges that will allow you to slide the door forward or back? I tried loosening the torque screws but won't budge! Any advice?
