Adjusting action on an FR?

How am i supposed to adjust the action on my Floyd if have to first slacken all the strings? How do you do it?
I did it without slackening the strings & the edges against the studs are taking a beating - losing the black paint.

Just like you did but you can you can remove the trem quickly or pull some pressure off one stud while adjusting.

It doesn't take long to flip the guitar over and pull the tremolo springs off to take the tension off the trem assy... then after adjustment just reattach the springs.

You can adjust a Floyd Rose under tension and it will not harm the knife edge.
