There is a persistent thing going on in Pages where there is a line under a rectangle shape when I make it. How do I get rid of it? I don't want it to show up when I export the document to a PDF. alt text

It’s not clear from your picture where the rectangle is or where is that line coming from. Are you sure it’s not one of the rectangle’s borders? What template are you using? Could you post a sample with a document that exhibits the behavior? – Martín Marconcini Oct 4 '10 at 16:03
is this a recursive question? – Robert S Ciaccio Dec 12 '10 at 12:30
did that answer your question? – fady Apr 21 '11 at 16:57

Simple. Make sure you've selected the object you want to remove the line from. Click your inspector, and navigate over to the graphic tab (see screenshot). select none. Last screenshot shows the result.
