Hi John,

what I understand here is that you've got a stroke on your rectangles and you want to get rid of that stroke.

To remove the stroke, open the Fill & Stroke dialog (Object -> Fill and Stroke), switch to the second tab ('Stroke') and click on the X icon.

To find more info about how to work with Inkscape, I suggest you take a look at the tutorials that come with it (Help -> Tutorials), and also visit our website at https://inkscape.org/en/learn/ , to find links to tutorials. There's also a great list of tutorials available at http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php .

Kind Regards,
 Maren
