Full Screen and two monitors - Mac

Hello everybody
First I want to say that I'm uses a MacPro, 10.12.2 Sierra.
It is connected on two monitors, the main 1920x1080 or secondary 1440x900.

A few days ago I downloaded Camtasia 3.0.3 for Mac and started using in test version to record some projects with Google Chrome, and I came across something very uncomfortable.
Google Chrome is in fullscreen on the secondary monitor.
The problem is that every time I click something on Camtasia on the primary monitor, Google Chrome on the secondary minimizes.

I'd really like you to figure out a way to get Camtasia on the first monitor without minimize Chrome that is in Full Screen on the second monitor. And I would like you to make a small panel that could be suspended or/and minimized to check the recording time, start, pause, resume, delete and finish. The panel could be better elaborated like it is done in Windows, and that by clicking it does not minimize Chrome on the second monitor.

Oh, I had forgotten that.There is something strange about the audio. I install the component.
I can not get an audio in the recordings. It just makes a strange noise.

I use a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 audio card, that may be the problem.

Thanks to all of Techsmith

I see what you mean- for the capture window, it jumps back to that space because the full-screen Chrome is on another 'space'. 
As a workaround, start recording on the monitor you want, and jump to the full-screen chrome space to make your recording. 

For your audio issue, I would suggestion contacting our (free) technical support, because they can try to figure out what is unique about your machine:
