I'm looking for a way to speedup the process of looking at each cell cells referenced by a formula. Right now I'm doing this manually, which requires going back and forth between the formula cell and each of the referenced cells (which I've to find with my eyes). Someone on IRC told me there's no built-in support for highlighting referenced cells and that it'd take a macro to do that.

Do you need just Tools | Detective > | Trace Precedents (or Shift+F7)? This will display the links through which a formula harvests its parameters. There is also Tools | Detective > | Trace Dependents (or Shift+F5) to do the same thing in reverse.

While writing this mail I'm thinking it would be even better not just to highlight but to either allow cycling over each cell with a keystroke...

You could use the arrow keys to move between cells and then Shift+F7 at each cell to have its precedents indicated. You might also wish to experiment with repeating Shift+F7 on the same cell: this appears to mark the precedents of the cell's own precedents. If you start at the end of a calculation, pressing Shift+F7 repeatedly may be a very quick way to show what you need.

I trust this helps.
