You're going to have to unpack what you mean by "manage", because it sounds like you want to alternate between one version and another,
depending on compile setup?
You talk about a specific phrases, and using versions of them in different parts of your project... I'm kind of lost as to what you're trying to do.

Yes, yes, that is right. Alternate between two versions or more.depending on compile setup?
No, no, depending on what the best version for the actor is for example.

Very sorry about that.
Example: there is a line in a scene in which an actor / the role R.D. says:
I'm kind of lost as to what you're trying to do.
But may be he better should say this, an alternate version:
I'm freaking out because I do not understand what you're trying to do.
I'll kick your brain, if you don't tell me what you're trying to do.
And so on.
So how could one handle / dsiplay / manage these three versions R.D. might say? Just write them next to each others? Or should one write the less preferred ones (for now) some where else?

So you're only keeping track until you decide which version goes into the final output? This set of alternatives is only until you can decide which parts to delete from Scrivener before producing output (a compiled script)?
Display to whom? Just to you?
Or are you trying to produce a script that gives the actor 3 alternative phrases to choose from in the compiled script?
How is this different from how you want to handle alternative documents?
Are you trying to mark these things so that you can say "this phrasing/entire document has succinct dialogue, this one's verbose, and this one is profane... now I want to compile a version of the script for each kind of phrasing, for all of the phrases I've created along these 3 lines..."?
If you're trying to just keep up with alternatives until YOU choose the one you want, that's different from marking text so that when you compile, it's clear to an actor/director that you have two scenes that are interchangeable, or 3 phrases that say essentially the same thing in alternative ways.

Okay... so what I would suggest for alternative phrasing would be easier in the beta, but I assume you're not using that.
