I had my lens set at 35mm on my 35mm camera.

On my APS-C, Should I set it at 35mm? and get the same frame?

You are changing the subject. Your initial post was a complaint about f stop equivalence not being published. My posts have addressed that specific subject and shown why, for the vast majority of camera users, that information is not needed and would only add confusion.

Information is readily available from camera and lens makers about angle of view equivalence. The vast majority of photographers find that information useful, which is why it is readily available.

If my angle of view changes, so does my exposure.

No, it doesn't.

It does.
