putting an invisible, (Non-breaking space) in a font using Fontographer

How is this done? What am I missing?

I have a font, it doesn't have this character built in. I need to put one in. Please help!

It's just a regular space -- copy from there. Its encoding as character U+00A0 makes it 'special' -- and only if the software it is used with does use this for what's it been assigned a code point to.

Fairly modern software, such as Adobe InDesign, doesn't really need a hardwired fixed space, it can emulate its behavior.

Does your font license allow modification?
