Metal patio door scraping bottom

picsHi Iím new here with a problem.
My condo patio door is scraping on the bottom latch side, when I close the door. Just a bit but enough to make it hard to fully close and lock.Iím not sure which way to turn the Allen wrench hinges in order to maybe move that corner up a bit.I will include pics.Thank you for any help.

Can't see the top hinge so it's hard to make any suggestion.

What part do you need to see? It has a cap on it and under the cap is a thing that is turned with an Allen wrench, I could take a pic of the bottom hinge uncapped if needed.

Sounds like a spring hinge. Any pic of the top hinge with the door both open and closed. Not the bottom hinge.

I turned both screws or whatever and I got a combo that definitely lessened the scrape, so I think thatís all I can do for now.
thanks for the help.
