Display ONLY non-breaking spaces in Word (not all spaces)

I am looking for a way to display only non-breaking spaces in Word, rather than all spaces. This will save me from having to toggle on and off the formatting display every time I come across a symbol or a figure. It is too confusing to read the text with all the spaces showing (current option in Word), with documents that are hundreds of pages long. Can someone help me with this, please?

If you search for "^s" (without the quote marks), you can highlight all non-breaking spaces, and associate them with a specific color. Ordinary space characters won’t be highlighted.
