Opening CDT files

Did your computer fail to open a CDT file? We explain what CDT files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your CDT files.

What is a CDT file?

Files that contain the .cdt file extension are created by Corel's CorelDRAW software application. CorelDRAW allows users to author and edit images that are stored on their hard drive.

The CDT files that are used by CorelDRAW are image template files that can be used with the CorelDRAW application. These templates include the properties for a new CorelDRAW image including the graphic and object fill settings as well as the ruler, grid, style properties, page settings and guidelines for the new CorelDRAW image.

The CDT templates allow users to use the same template styles across multiple CorelDRAW images without having to define the settings for each file individually.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
