Protecting Options in Tracked Changes

Is there any way I can save specific display options I set for a document, so
they are saved with the file, not the software?

I have a draft document with tracked changes and need to send it to another
party; however, my boss wants the other party to see our tracked changes
display in the same color (done!), and he does NOT want the other party to
see who made the edits, or when. I turned off screen tips, changed the
option in track changes so everytihing displays in the same color.

My concern is that unless these display features are saved with the
document, the other party will see them when they open it up. Any way to
protect my "hidden" display options?

No. How markup is viewed depends entirely on the settings on the recipient's
system. You can, however, use the option to "Remove personal from file
properties on save" (Tools | Options | Security), and this will change the
name of the "reviewer" from a specific name to "Author." All markup will use
the same color, but you can't specify what color it will be.
