drivers door adjustment

A question about the door. The car has new sills installed a couple of yrs ago by the PO. The top of the driver door just rubs the B post when closing. There is maybe 1/8 - 3/16 inch at the door and A post. Is there any adjustment inside the door at the upper hinge to eliminate this rubbing??

Yep yep. door hinges.

Screws to A post move door up and down and in and out.

Try removing the latch. Get door aligned with proper gaps and not rubbing anywhere. PS was easy peasy, DS is a bitch, I have top hinge in to far and bottom hinge out to far. Reversing that order is on my list to do. Once gaps are good reinstall the door latch. Latch has a bit of adjustment possible as well. And then I will go back and fix the paint.
