    I think Acorn is referring to the Lock Page & Lock Background in the Page and Layer Gallery.

    When you hover over the outline on the right side of the page, does the cursor change to a double arrow? If so, you can drag the right margin in or out.

    And in the Page Options > Page Size you can select Custom for the Page Size and manually change the width.

    Any of these suggestions help?

    HI
    I dont seem to have any of that you have in your image, the only arrows i get are at the bottom to make the page longer

    Jack, simple fix. All you have done is hidden the right hand side of the page as everything is White.
    Drop any non-white colour from the colour Bar onto the Pasteboard.

    The Page background is still white so now you can click and drag the right edge.

    To adjust your Rectangle, as Gary indicated, unlock the Page background, select the Rectangle and open the Fill tool and adjust.
    You seem to be playing with an image that has a fat right border that is white. This needs to be cropped out; drop the image from the Bitmap gallery, crop it and make a Bitmap Copy and use that as your fill.

    Reverse all your unlocking steps.

    alternatively on the xara program window menu tick 'show print borders' - you can then see where you need to drag and can untick when you have finished
