For a new saddle I measure the distance from the crank to where my sit bones should be on the old saddle and from the stem to the same point on the old saddle. Also, I take a good look at how the nose is tilted or not in relation to where the sit bones should be.

Then I try to get the same measurement on the new saddle and just eyeball or maybe with the help of a spirt level get the tilt of the nose there 'bouts. If the saddle profile is different, I just do what looks right to me. Then I'll go through several weeks of riding with the tools to make minor adjustments until I get tired of tweaking.
