Spreadsheets are the most popular live programming environments, but they are also notoriously fault-prone. One
reason for this is that users actively rely on copy-paste to make up for the lack of abstraction mechanisms. Adding
abstraction however, introduces indirection and thus cognitive distance. In this paper we propose an alternative: copy-
paste tracking. Tracking copies that spreadsheet users make, allows them to directly edit copy-pasted formulas, but
instead of changing only a single instance, the changes will be propagated to all formulas copied from the same source.
As a result, spreadsheet users will enjoy the benefits of abstraction without its drawbacks.
