I require manuscripts to be delivered in an .rtf or .doc(x) file, and I will return the edits to the author in docx format. I don’t accept pdf files for editing.

My formatting preferences are 12 point Times New Roman font, 1″ margins, and either double spaced or 1.5 line spacing.

If I’m line editing a manuscript, it’s easier for me to work with a file that uses formatted paragraph indentation rather than tabs.
