Item with Instructions

Basically, you can pre-define some notes, options, or modifications as the INSTURCTIONS. And the INSTRUCRIONS can be applied to items as you need.

While you can set some items or INSTRUCTIONS as an OPTION SET and apply it to an item, and the items in the OPTION SET can be applied with INSTRUCTIONS.
