Is it just me, or is 2021 R2 excruciatingly slow? I was very anxious to install it, as it looked like it will fix a lot of the issues I am running into with 2021 R1. However, I quickly reverted back to 2021 R1 after experiencing extremely slow behavior - when simply opening the program and also when performing even simple tasks that were a lot faster in 2021 R1. I first tried an "update" install. It was super slow, so I tried a clean install after uninstalling ORD 2021 R1 and following the instructions in this link (https://communities.bentley.com/products/road___site_design/w/road_and_site_design__wiki/52791/uninstall-process-for-openroads-designer). It was still painfully slow. As of now I reverted back to ORD 2021 R1.
Hi Josh, its weird - it was also happening to me for the first few DGNs i opened, but the issue looks to have resolved itself after a restart.

Hmm. I've restarted quite a few times, especially after uninstalls and reinstalls. Perhaps I didn't work with it long enough. I've got a deadline to meet soon. I'll have to debug later.
Have you tried deleting your preferences? Both ORD and the .UPF.
Yes. That's always my first step when things aren't working. That didn't seem to affect anything.
I tried all of the above today again, and it now seems to be working fine. I'm not quite sure if or what I did differently, but at this point, I don't really care.
Experience the same behaviour in OpenRail 2021 R2. I work fine up till the software bombed out, I ignored the issue. From then on it take 2min just to move a geometry point. It might be interesting to know. Do your company use ZScaler for cloud security?
