Question about using an L bracket

Hi,

I just ordered my first L bracket. It's from RRS for a Canon 5d3 and will be used with a Sirui K-40X ball head. Not having used one of these before, I was wondering how do people line up the tripod head on the relatively long rail? There do not seem to be any markings or anything to quickly line up the camera's center of gravity with the head. Do people use a permanent marker to mark the plate once they find the perfect spot? Or do it by feel every time? Or am I overthinking this? Thanks for any tips or help anyone can provide.

Ken
