Insert an in-line image into a table cell using Pages on OS X?

How can I insert an image into a table cell using Pages (OS X) without it becoming the cell background? I want it to be a regular in-line image, but can't figure out how to do this for the life of me.

I am not saying there is not a way. I do not have Pages to play with right now.

But the article leads me to believe this may not be possible.

You will read at the bottom: "When you add an image to a table cell, it becomes the cell's background, so you can type text over it."

Hopefully somebody can prove me wrong.

Could you somehow play around with this and force the image to be in-line?

This document (the paragraph just before the gray box) seems to imply you should be able to place the image inline with text within a table cell.

I've tried and tried, but to no avail. Perhaps this is a bug within Pages?

Although I must agree with both of you, the first page suggests that it is not possible but the third page suggests it is. It seems not even Apple can agree on the stated functionality of one of their main productivity apps!

I just scanned through here, but came up empty. It looks like a pretty active forum though, so you can probably get a better answer if you make a posting there. Sorry.

I will post there and report back my findings for anyone who stumbles across this thread. Thanks!
