Inserting a shape into a table cell in Pages

Ceroc Addict

Tried for an hour to insert a shape into a table cell in Pages.
  • When I had the cursor inside the cell, the Insert -> Shape menu was greyed out.
  • When I created the shape outside the table and tried to drag it in, the shape becomes the background image of the cell (and fills the cell completely)

Here's how I managed it:

* Draw your shape
* Select the shape and then choose "Send to Back" from the Arrange menu

This makes it so that the table can be placed over the top of the image. Then just move the image to where it needs to appear in the table cell.
