I want single digits that stand alone to get an underline (red or green, as if they were caught by spellcheck). So the number 24 would be fine, but just 7 or 0 would get an underline.

Example of what I'd like to get an underline: There are 7 people at the party.
What shouldn't get an underline: There are seven people at the party.
What also shouldn't get an underline: There are 77 people at the party.

There is a pretty easy way to do this, or something similar.

Use ctrl + F to open your find menu.
If this brings up a side bar, use the drop down menu next to the search bar to open "Advanced Find"

In the "Find what:" field, put ^#
This tells word to look for all digits.

If you click More in the bottom left and tick "Find whole words only", this will limit it to single digits.

You can then click "Reading Highlight" and "Highlight All"
This will highlight all of the single digits in your document.
