Like PhotoBob, I have also found that notes are helpful, especially a drawing of a burning and dodging plan, which I prefer to annotate in terms of f/stop (or percentage) exposure and grade adjustments. It works very well session-to-session for me, when working in the same format. It can help in changing formats, too, but it is not sufficient in that case. It is not quite like starting from scratch for me, but perhaps 30% of the work, when making a significant print size change.
