1. I am having trouble creating a new frame using a template. I have the following template but I am unable to create a frame using it.

    <Frame name="GrimoireBaseFrameTemplate" virtual="true">
        <Size x="500" y="400" />
            <Anchor point="CENTER" />
        <Backdrop bgFile="Interface\Tooltips\UI-Tooltip-Background" edgeFile="Interface\Tooltips\UI-Tooltip-Border" tile="true">
                <AbsInset left="5" right="5" top="5" bottom="5" />
                <AbsValue val="16" />
                <AbsValue val="16" />

    I have tried following it with:

    <Frame name="GrimoireBaseFrame1" inherits="GrimoireBaseFrameTemplate" />

    but it doesn't seem to create the new frame. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are there any errors in your FrameXML.log?

    No there aren't that is why i am confused.
