By locking the saw with the 0* indent, you’re setting up the fence to be square with the sawblade as it runs thru it’s travel.

I don’t rotate the blade, but make sure that a tooth is in contact with the square thru its full travel. If it doesn’t stay in contact, I move the square and fence and try again. Once I have contact thru full travel, the fence is square with the blade and can be tightened.

You can do the same thing with a board. Mark a line sqare with a good edge; hold it to the fence while you move the saw in and out and watch the blade tooth on the line. If it moves away, rotate the board and fence and try again. When the blade stays on the line thru full travel, the fence is square with the saw.
