It might be a number of things... a link to an example file might help.

Could it be that Patsy is referring to the 'page' area?

If so, Patsy, you can disable the page border display by going to File -> Document properties, first tab, bottom: Uncheck 'Show page border'.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you could use the website http://imgh.us or any other file hoster of your choice to share the file, as Tyler suggested.

Thanks so much! I just downloaded it and was unable to try it, but Hachmann's directions made it disappear.
