In my simple app package, in the app.py, I have something like

# A Master view which brings a master template
class Master(grok.View):
    """The master page template macro"""

# A specific form template
form_template = grok.PageTemplateFile('form.pt')

And my edit view class starts with something like:

class Edit(grok.EditForm):


To go with that I have a 'form.pt' (I had to put it directly at the
root of the package, not in a the app_templates folder), and of course
a 'master.pt' in the app_templates.

Hope that helps.
IIRC I found the information by reading the doctests in the Grok package.
