Slow Trim Tools with Civil Elements

I am trying to draw a lot of driveways on this job I am working on. I have lines for the edges of my driveway that are not ruled to anything, along with my line at the R/W that was an offset to the R/W, then I removed the rules and then re-ruled it so it was also a free element not ruled to anything.

Then I created my 15' radii which are ruled to the driveway edges and the EOP. I am trying to trim all these lines so they look correct for the plans and each trim command is taking at least 10 seconds. I have a ton of lines to trim and this is going to take way too long

I am on MR5 and the required Microstation and Geopak..

  • So is this issue just an inherent Microstation issue and I just have to be careful with the length and complexity of my linework? I can only hope when we get connect and access to more RAM and CPU cores that issues like this are resolved.
