they make a tool that is really helpful ( a god send actually) its sold by stewart mac.
It holds the saddle in place and has an adjustment screw on the back to make it a breeze.

You shouldn't have extra problems with intonation
on floating tremolo, problems are when you try
to change strings gauge, change action
or restring it.
What causes you the problem actually?

Outlaw2112 - Give a Tremel-No a try. I gave mine a second chance, and I realized I didn't have it installed properly the first time. It works perfectly!! My floyd is now a fixed bridge...and I can change it back to floyd in about 2 seconds!

This looks very interesting. Is that thing for just one string or for all of them?

Is the price for a full set or just one?

Seems like a clever device, especially since I've experience that saddles have jumped while I was playing - when the screw wasn't tight enough this seem just brilliant a solution.
