Adjusting Trim Settings During Auto Cruise

I’m attempting to level off the pitch of the aircraft at altitude while auto-pilot is engaged by using trim but the auto-pilot rather quickly over-rides almost all of my input. I realize aircraft weight, air-speed, altitude, load, etc all play a role in the pitch of an aircraft at level flight, (as well as a slight nose high pitch is a perfectly normal flight characteristic of some aircraft), but is there not a way to keep manually imputed trim settings as applied without the auto-pilot overriding the setting? Sure, partial flaps can push the nose down but that isn’t beneficial, (increased drag / decreased fuel efficiency), nor realistic.

So far I haven’t found a solution; perhaps I’m missing it?

Just add or decrease trim by little steps. Not the +/- 10% steps. Give the aircraft time to adjust.
