    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. What format are you exporting as? What software are you using to view it?

  • Does it do this if you make a new document? Is there anything showing in your layers panel? The default artboard does look like this with a thin black border and light grey border on the right. I don't think you can change that, but you really have to zoom in, like 1600% to even see that.

  • This is without layers but I figure out that if I export the file and tick 'Use Artboards' then I don't get the white border
