For those of you who use them - what format do you provide to your betas? A Word doc that they mark up with comments or PDF or....?

Word doc. It's the easiest thing for me to work with afterward.

I once needed another reader and one of my writing buddies offered her beta reader up. Only bc she wasn't a writer she didn't know how to use comments and track changes. My friend said she'd tried to explain it before and the woman just didn't get it.

I passed and found someone else. There's enough going on in the edit stage that trying to work with a format that doesn't work for me seems like and extra time suck.

I agree that the Word format is easier for me to use afterward, but I'll send whatever they want if they request something special.
