Help with using a Rotator

I have installed the falcon rotator on my C11, and it works great.
But I do not know exactly how to align my camera to a previous image without manual trial and error.
I would like to be able to load a previous image in the ALIGN tab, and have EKOS rotate my camera to match it, so I can continue adding subs at the same rotational orientation.
What are the proper steps to do this? 

Thanks!

Peter

Thanks Jasem. I use Load and Slew.
And when it loads, I can see the previous image's rotation details.
But when EKOS takes a current photo to compare and plate solves it, it displays the current orientation but DOES NOT automatically rotate my camera to the original photo's orientation. Is there an option I need to turn on, so EKOS will rotate my camera automatically?

You have to go into the options for ekos and turn on that you want it to sync the rotator too.
