Sigma 70mm DG Macro question

I just received the above lens. I wanted a macro, but have never used one. The lens is amazingly sharp and I really like that. My question is this: I cannot figure out how to use it as a 1:1 macro. It seems that it only adjusts to that marking on the barrel when the camera is set to manual focus, but the focusing at that point doesn't happen without the ratio changing. What am I missing? Of course the "instructions" are not really instructions. Thanks ahead.

Nevermind

I sorted it out. I just was not prepared to get so close with the lens. Wow!
