What format of file should a graphic designer, give that clients can edit? I use CorelDraw. They sometimes need a file that they can edit by themselves. Converting PDF to word changes the formatting of the layout. Please help!

Several reasons. I use CorelDRAW. It gives you options to optimise for the target. Web, standard (print) etc. This is a good thing, because you'll need to decide who to target. Secondly, if the logo is a raster file (BMP, JPEG, PNG etc.) as opposed to a vector, that will increase its size. Thirdly, if there are lots and lots of same coloured regions, weld them together into one region. The way PDF files are generated is standard. Raster images are stored as XObject. Whilst vector images are stored as paths. PDF files normally follow. Most of the Postscript standard applies. So check what you've got. If CorelDRAW transforms the image to a raster graphic then stores it, it'll be bigger. So check your save (publish as PDF) options.

Convert PDF to Word: All You Need to Know

A final, perhaps more interesting reason to check your options is you may have had trouble with it already. For example. I have used CorelDRAW since before Adobe Reader 1. When you try to add a vector graphic to a raster image, that can get you in a pickle in your save. Here's what I've seen happening. “If the image is a bitmap, it will go “A-Z” or some odd number into a “Z” and it will not be saved. The same is true if you try to add a 3d vector image to a bitmap or BMP format. If you try to save a bitmap file as a vector image it doesn't know where it has got it. It'll just give up and say “Sorry, can't add to the 'X' area, or it's going to be the wrong size. The “A-Z” area is an odd.
