I'm am often frustrated with using Spotlight in that if I should move or scale the either the model or the image in spotlight, that it's almost impossible to get it back into the exact same position again. Is there some way I'm overlooking to save or bookmark the position and scale of the spotlight image? Is there something I could key on the timeline that would work here?

Timeline is the easiest way to save your models position.

You can also save timeline tracks that can be loaded at any time. under the movie palate, movie > timeline > save/load.

Or you can use File > save as to save a project file that also saves the timeline in between zbrush sessions.

For spotlight, you can save out specific spotlights and re load them at any time and they will load back into zbrush in whatever position you saved them at. You can do this under the texture palate > save/load spotlight.
