How can the colour used to indicate changes by a particular author (i.e. when "By Author" is being used for the colour)?

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.
