    found it for you:

    OK, so now the question arises as to how to automatically input a backspace after it. on BB10 you could type "90 deg [space]“ and have it put "90°" instead by putting a backspace string in the character replacement before the degree symbol.

    is there any way to accomplish this with the Android BlackBerry keyboard?

    I tried saving "deg " in my personal dictionary but it didn't work. Interesting.

    I have been asking about this since the Priv. Even asking the BB guy who was our original contact. But, alas, nothing was ever done about it. The macros do not recognize those backspace characters - %b

    It works.

    Hit the PLUS sign in Word Substitution, type deg in the first field and then the Degree sign in the second field. Then hit the arrow in the upper left to save your entry.

    I just used it in a bbm chat group. I type deg and on the space bar swipe I see the dregg-sym and if I hit the spacebar it inserts it.

    I used to do the same when I used BB10. I used "DF" for degrees Fahrenheit, and "DC" for degrees Celsius. That worked great, with the exception of the times I wanted to write, "Washington DC."

    I use "deg" to call up the degree symbol.

    @LiamQ or @Colin Ho this is really still bugging on the word substitution:
    you can't type 37deg[space] as the deg isn't recognised inside a word (that's OK I think as other word would get substituted all the time), but even if deg is in substitution with ° if you type "37 deg[space]" it will be "37 °" instead of wanted "37°".
    Please add a way to put in those special macros for backspace in word substitution.
