Sweating door

My wife and I have bought a house in Ohio and the door to the backyard is a wood frame french patio door. When it is cold outside the door that does not open sweats alot. The door that does open does not sweat at all. I do not feel any air coming from the frame of either door. What can I do to fix this problem.

Sweating door

Is it the door frame that is sweating or the glass in the door? If it's the glass, is it on the inside surface or between the panes?

Do you have forced air heat with a floor register in front of the set of doors? Is it directing air towards one but not the other?

Sweating door

Its the frame and the wood between the windows. There is a register in front of the center of the two doors. I belive that the air is blown toward the room and away from the doors. It is a forced air furnace.
