I have 2018.6 Camtasia Studio. I can open Camtasia Studio 2018. When I try to record the screen, the camtasia recorder outline comes up but will not show. It is one big white space with no content and the ability to record. My cursor turns blue and spins. Could you all tell me how to fix this?

If it were me I would run a repair install of the program. See if that clears it up.
The image below is for Camtasia 2019. However, the procedure is identical for 2018.

I remember a few occasions when Recorder somehow changed recording dimensions to 1 pixel by 1 pixel, creating a near-invisible recording window. I fixed that by changing back to full-screen and adjusting from there.
