I haven't observed this being suggest elsewhere, so I'll give it a shot. It would be great if a "cancel" button can be added to the "Opening Project" status box.

Opening Project status box

Some of our projects take up to a minute to fully open to a point to where you can click on things without Pro locking up and becoming unresponsive; most projects open in less than 10 seconds. The slow loading times occur regardless of where the data is stored (locally or server) and it seems to be really slow on opening projects that contain lots a tabs (catalog tab, map, basemap,  multiple layouts, etc.).


The long loading really become an issue when you open the wrong project by accident and then have to wait for everything to load, meanwhile if there was a cancel button you could simply press the button and Pro would take you back to the "Open Recent Projects Page".
