❗predefinedBlocks in experience.json overrides template.json

The configuration specified in predefinedBlocks  within experience.json overrides that in template.json.

In fact, the set of attributes in predefinedBlocks on experience.jsoncan be a subset of the full set specified in template.json. The specific values in experience.json will then overrides those in template.json.

Any attributes listed in experience.json file overwrites those in template.json.

Note: The attributes are not compulsory to be stated in experience.json. If certain attributes do not exist, template.json template will be used instead.
