I wrote my PhD dissertation in LaTeX, but my advisor told me it needs to be in a format other than PDF to send to my committee members. He says it is too difficult to make comments or corrections on PDF. What is the best format for a dissertation?

Your supervisor is being tough on you for some reason. He/she offers only criticism of the pdf format but no suggestion of a preferred format, which is surprising. Besides, supervisors/reviewers often review documents from multiple, non-coercible sources and know how to provide comments irrespective of format, for example, by commenting in a seperate file using text copy and line/page numbers as reference. Exploit the absence of a preferred format and bombard your supervisor with multiple formats of your thesis. - Use the great tool "pandoc" to convert your thesis to Microsoft Word and other common formats. - Place your thesis on a collaborative LaTex editor such as "sharelatex". - Build a pdf thesis with line numbers, large gutter/margin space and double line text. - Use latexdiff to produce post-review version of the pdf thesis. Hopefully, all these options combined should satisfy the thesis reviewers. Good luck!
