What is PAT file?

A PAT (Pattern File) file is a pattern file used by image-editing applications. PAT files allow users to create, edit and save patterns for further use.

More information

PAT files are commonly used by designers to store and manage pattern data. A PAT file contains a bitmap image that is a guide to creating repetitive patterns. When making a pattern, a user can specify the shape, color, size, and other attributes that make up the pattern. Designers then use these patterns to fill areas with repetitive content for their projects.

PAT files can be opened and edited with the help of image-editing applications. Alternatively, these files can be opened in some text editors. However, because PAT files are binary files, they may not be appropriately displayed in these applications.
