I found a bug in Camtasia recorder, where if you launch the recorder, then change screen resolutions, then the next time you launch, the recorder may not show up..  

Approximate steps to reproduce:

(In my case, I have two monitors, one 4K, the other smaller, in case that matters.)

1 - Open Camtasia Recorder, and position the recording toolbar somewhere.
2 - Exit
3 - Change your screen resolution to a lower resolution
4 - Start Camtasia Recorder
5 - Notice that in some cases (not every case), that the recorder window is not on the screen, but is instead at a coordinate that used to be on screen at the old resolution, but no longer is at the new resolution.  If you are lucky you can "Windows+Arrow" to get it on screen.

Suggested fix: Add code similar to this to when the recorder shows:

If [Recorder is not on a visible monitor] then [Move recorder so that it is.]

That way, one can change screen resolutions without worry that the recording tool bar becomes non-accessible.
