Posted · Printer bed help

I recently updated my Cura program to the newest version and its been pretty great! But there seems to be an issue that is bothering me. When I go into the program I see this: 5acae6c7d6235_ScreenShot2018-04-09at12_06_05AM.thumb.png.eb5662d5b1c144c974da75adbbdcd905.png

It looks like a shadow of the printer bed? But I'm concerned that its limiting the space I have to print on. (I use PrinterBot Simple Metal) Is there a way to remove the shadow bed? 

 

The Second issue I'm having is that my extruder is trying to go out of the printer bed, but there is plenty to room in the program when I set up my print. So it 'hits' the edge and every time it freaks me out. The print comes out fine but I'm concerned for larger prints in the future. You can see where it started to print then 'hit' the edge. It shifted the model over and completed the task but I'm wondering how I can fix this. Centering the model in the program has solved this issue at times but its not a permanent fix. I've already set the Brim to 0 and other similar setting but it still feels like the program is not registering my full bed size.

If anyone knows why its doing this, I would really appreciate the help. Thank you in advanced!
