3MB !?
(But how many fonts are listed there in this case? I think 5000 fonts or more.)

FontExpert uses Microsoft XML parser, and it seems it fails on this big file. Usually XML file is completely loaded by XML parser to memory, then the file is parsed.

You can split this XML file into 2 parts.
XML file is actually simple text file, and you can edit it in any text editor (that can process this 3MB text file.)

1. Original file: MyWorklist.xml
2. Create 2 copies of this file:
MyWorklist_1.xml (3 MB)
MyWorklist_2.xml (3 Mb)

3. Open the 1st file and delete first half of <File path=.... /> records.
4. Open the 2nd file and delete the second half of <File path=.... /> records.

As a result you will have two worklists:
MyWorklist_1.xml (1.5 MB)
MyWorklist_2.xml (1.5 Mb)

I hope FE will open smaller 1.5 MB XML files.

We will keep this problem in mind, we'll try to find a solution in future versions.
