Alright. The first think you have to do, it to open a new 'paper'.
Press File -> New. You'll get up a new window, chose image size threr as usual, then go to Advanced Alternatives (click the +). There should stand something like Fill with: choose Transparency.

Then you draw your image. :)
Everything that's marked as grey chess-squares will be transparent.
The other places will not ;)
