Can I change the margin space of my PDF?

PDFs waste a lot of margin space that could be better used for actual data. Are there ways, either documented or undocumented, where we can tweak the PDF output to use more real-estate on the pages?

This is one of the templates being used for the pdf generation:
/lib/python2.7/site-packages/reportlab/platypus/doctemplate.py

There are leftMargin, rightMargin, topMargin, and bottomMargin variables that are set to one inch by default. If you modify this to a value (the values are in points, where one point is .013836") of your choosing, the Splunk generated PDFs will reflect the change immediately.

Where in Splunk can I find that template? Is this template specific to my account?  If not, do I have to be an administrator to update that file?
