Hello, draw a rectangle as high as the highest glyph, and copy this along anytime you paste something in Fontographer.
I would make lines of glyphs in Illustrator first, they copy 10 or 20 glyphs at a time including the rectangle and paste in Fontographer.
Then in the glyph window: select all, press shift and deselect the first glyph, go to next glyph, paste, click a point, drag everything to the left while pressing shift, repeat deselect the first glyph, etc.
