How can the colour used to indicate changes by a particular author

You enquiry sentence appears to lack a main verb! Do you perhaps
mean "... be selected"?
I don't think they can. The help text says the colour is
"automatically determined ..., then modified to match to the author
of each change."
The colours chosen appear to be chosen according to the settings in
the current user's options, and not inherited from the corresponding
options set by other users. So you can always see the difference
between changes made by different authors, even if those authors did
not select "By author", but you cannot control those colours - or, I
think, rely on their being the same colours as seen by those other
authors. In other words, what is preserved in the document is merely
the name of the author of each change, not any colours - which are
then determined by the options for the current user.
You may like to experiment to confirm that this is true for your arrangements.
I trust this helps.
