Thanks but f it seems:

Support will be added with U8g2 v2.16

but maybe I understand wrong

Ah, yes, my mistake. Please download 2.16.x beta release from here:

https://github.com/olikraus/U8g2_Arduino/archive/master.zip

Install the zip file via Arduino IDE Library Manager ("add zip file" menu entry)

Thank you so much for your help

anyway If you do not want use external libraries I found the way to display a symbol that looks like at °


"\xF7"

Using a hex value of 0x0090 worked until about a week ago....  I think the character table must have been updated.   I am unable to get a degree sign to work using ANY of the published values!
