What is a CDRT file?

A CDRT file is an image template created by CorelDRAW, an image editing and page layout program. It contains image properties, such as page, ruler, grid, guideline, and style properties, for creating multiple .CDR documents or images. CDRT files are used to create documents such as posters, infographics, logos, social media posts, web pages, business cards, and invitations.
