Default Changing frames: marking frame position

Some people use different frames for indoors and outdoors and use them in different positions. How do you guys mark those various positions. One thing that comes to my mind is using tape, but is it precise?
Another to use nail polish to mark the centre of the frame on the mounting and align this with a mark on the shoes, but maybe that's not very practical?
I am looking at using a 4x100mm frame indoors (training) and a hybrid 110/100 outdoords.
thanks for sharing

Thin sharpie and using different colors for the different types of skating and/or frames. It doesn't come off, even if you skate in the rain.

I mark center on the front and rear mounting decks of all my frames. When I find the correct position for the boot, I make a marks on the boot that line up with the center marks on the frame. Do this, you can switch frames and get within 1mm of the right spot right off the bat.

Hey, thanks for sharing.
A couple of weeks ago I marked the centre of my frame mountings and also marked it on the boot. I did that on the other frame 4x100 that i have too, hopefully, allowing me to switch quickly between the frames.
However, over the past weeks I have adjusted the frame position even further and the markings on the boot no longer match bummer. I think that marking it with tape may be a better solution, especially when one still makes tweaks to the position and/or when your technique is still in development (which is practically almost infinite ).

I usually use a Sharpie marker to make the marks and the marks can easily be removed with rubbing alcohol.
