CDT - CorelDRAW Image Template

What is a CDT file

CDT files are associated with the image editing program CorelDRAW. However, CDT files are no raster or vector image files, but rather templates used in CorelDRAW. These template files are used to create multiple CDR files based off of the same template containing the same settings.

The CDT template file contains all properties needed by CorelDRAW to create a new image. It contains graphic settings, object fill settings, rulers and grids, guidelines, different styles and more.

Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open CDT documents:

  • ACD Systems Canvas (Windows)
  • CorelDRAW Graphics Suite (Windows)
  • Corel Presentations (Windows)
  • Inkscape (Windows, Mac & Linux)
  • sK1 (Linux)
  • UniConvertor (Linux)
