when inserting a map on the canvas of print composer and moving that map around, quite often, there is a rectangle that cannot be deleted.

This rectangle is positioned at the initial place, where I draw my map first.

I thought, it is just a "on screen" problem, but in print, the rectangle is there as well.

Then I try to put it into the background, but this doesn't work either.

How to get rid of this line?

    have you tried the refresh option. sometimes this happens to me but i think it is to do with processor speed. – Ger Feb 17 '14 at 11:19

I had this problem a number of times as well. Try adding the map again. But before you move anything, make sure you click "Lock Layers" in the right hand side bar.

What version are you using? From memory this was fixed at around version 2.2. The workaround for previous versions is to save your project and then reload it - that will remove the extra rectangle.
