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.
