french doors need to move bottom over

in the pictures you can see that I need to move the bottom over at most 1/8in.

That also would line up the top of the doors.

The weather strip in the middle otherwise doesn't line up.

I tried putting shims under the hinge but that only closes the gap of the hinge.

Thanks

You should be able to fix that by adding shims behind the hinges, but you probably need to do both the bottom and center hinge. Not sure why adding a shim didn't work for you, the door may be binding somewhere, like above the top hinge. I'd try removing the screws on one half of the middle hinge, and then shimming the bottom hinge. If it won't move, try sliding a thin blade, like a putty knife, between the door and the frame to see where it is hanging up.

I ended up adjusting the hinge knuckles.
