How do I prevent Visio from adding a margin when I export a page or selection to an image?

For my selection - a shape (a picture with overlayed text) which is 29.5 cm x 1.39 cm - it appears to add a white border (margin) that is 18px left and right, 1 px top and 3px bottom.

(In the meantime, I'm using Paint.NET and the Magic Wand to find the white border, invert the selection and then cut/remove it).

Can you post a picture of your Visio file, including all boundary boxes of the drawing elements? (Just select all using Ctrl-A and post a screenshot of it.) –  Li-aung Yip Sep 20 '13 at 6:45
