Do you mean the red filled one?  It looks like you need to set the fill colour to transparent, thus:

I am not sure what you are trying to do. If you choose SHAPES from the toolbar you will see a variety of choices including rectangles. Pick one and you can then adjust the fill, shape and border.  Also opacity but it affects the entire graphic not just the border or fill (I have a work around for that if it is an issue)
If this doesn't address it please give some more details as to what you are trying to do. I see a filled orange box and if you want no fill in the center part with just the border, that can be done with what I just posted

Sure you can.  I'm not going to repeat the other answers, but this might add to the mix/ help you.    First,  keep in mind ALL shapes have two basic components - the  FILL and the OUTLINE.    Then there are attributes  you can add like "Shadow"... the  Thickness and color  of the outline....  the color of the fill,   the 'opacity' of the whole thing... and so forth. 

So...  "just a rectangle"  is going to be a shape WITH some kind of OUTLINE... but  NO fill.    In "SnagIT"  "NO" fill means "TRANSPARENT" fill  (the gray/white checkerboard-looking one).  

If you click on  the "Theme" drop-down at the top of the SHAPES panel and choose "BASIC"  - there are a whole bunch of  rectangles, circles, etc. with a transparent fill - already set up for you.    

Here's the most important thing... Once you draw your rectangle and tweak  any of the parameters to your liking ..  RIGHT-CLICK  and  select   "ADD TO QUICK STYLES" .    Voila.. now  that exact shape will be available to you at the top of your "BASIC" Theme.
