This seems like an interminable delay compared to what I recall as a MUCH snappier performance with preceding versions. I _never_ recall seeing the ?spinning beach ball? before when opening a source file.

>>> Hmmm... not seeing that here. It could be that the OS is rebuilding the meta-data database in the background; that takes a good deal of system time and seems to slow down everything else. Open Activity Monitor, sort by name and look for all the mdworker and other md applications to see if they are showing heavy activity.

Let me add... Go to System Preferences and open the iCloud Pane. Then, assuming the iCloud Drive item is checked look under the Options… and uncheck the Desktop & Document Folders item if it's already checked.
As far as DropBox is concerned the important thing is whether you are opening a file that is in your DropBox.
