What is an OTG file?

An OTG file is a drawing template created by various vector graphics applications, such as OpenOffice Draw and LibreOffice Draw. It contains a drawing with content and a layout Draw users can replicate to create .ODG drawings. OTG files are saved in a file package in the OASIS OpenDocument standard with XML formatting.

When you save a graphic template with Draw, the application creates an OTG file to store the layout and contents. After saving the file, you can close the template, re-open it, then continue modifying it. To create an OTG file with Draw, select File → New → Drawing, modify the drawing, then select File → Save As... and choose "ODF Drawing Template (.odg)" from the file type dropdown menu.

NOTE: Apache OpenOffice was formerly known as OpenOffice.org. The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) maintains the OpenDocument standard.
