mask master

I got a problem with mask to master command in my MM font.
I designed MM font with 4 axis, but i want to copy all the outliness from second axis to fourth axis - how can i do that?

Ihave studied Multiple Master chapter, but i don't really understand how can i copy outliness from second axis to fourth axis. I realized that probably i could do it by using a "mask to master" but it doasn't work

I attached some image.

I need this becouse i decided to start design "optical size" from the beginning.

Careful: don't confuse axes and masters. You designed a font with 2 axes and 4 masters.

I would do Generate Instance to generate the second master as a separate font temporarily. Then use the Assign Master command to get it into the MM font again. Assign Master is more reliable than Blend Fonts or Mask to Master.

Thanks man,
I did it, but this operation distorted some of my glyphs.

Some of my glyphs need to manicure in black weight.

Anyway i decided to do it on 1 axe and 2 masters only -> weight
I need you to show me the way how can i do it, how can i change some of my black glyphs without using "optical size" axes which i did befor.

Please check attached GIF, you will notice what i'm talking about.

Thin, light, normal, medium and bold weight are with incomplete circle inside ;etter "a", but the black version i want to be like in my avatar -> with complete circle inside "a".
