If you already started in the Online version you can move your return to the Desktop program even without paying for Online.  If you already paid for the Online version you can contact them to give you the program download.  

First download the .tax2018 file from the Online version,

After you get the program installed the first thing to do before you open your tax return is to update the program and install any state programs you had. Then open your file. So you first might need to start a fake return to be able to download the state program (go to FILE - New)

I've tried this several times.  It will only let me browse for .tax2017 files.   When I select browse for *.* Files and import the 2018 data, it comes up as blank every time.

No that is when you start a New Return.  Don't start a new return.  You OPEN your return.  Go up to File-Open.  You do not transfer or import it.
