Alternatively, in the Glyph window (Mac):
Select and then Ctrl-click on the base glyph composite;
Select Copy Metrics from the contextual menu (Yes, all commands
should be available from the main menu bar, but a lot of them aren't).
This will take all sidebearings and advance widths from the original
glyph. For the UC & lc Ii you might want to adjust manually; for the
lc i, the settings for dotlessi will be the source.
You must have the black bounding box on the base glyph to get the
appropriate contextual menu.
