What is a CDRT file?
A CDRT file is a vector drawing or document template created by CorelDRAW, an image editing and page layout program. It contains document or drawing information, such as text, images, shapes, layers, rulers, grids, guidelines, and style properties. CorelDRAW users create CDRT templates to generate multiple .CDR documents or images, such as posters, infographics, or logos, with a similar layout or style.
CorelDRAW is one of several apps included in the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. Graphic designers and digital photographers commonly use the suite to create and edit documents and artwork.
Among its image and document editing tools, CorelDRAW provides templates for replicating layouts and styles in graphics and documents. CorelDRAW saves templates using the CDRT format (which replaced the .CDT format).
