I was able to do it like this: First, create the drawing canvas, arrange in front of text, size it, then use Insert > Text Box. Use the 'Draw Text Box' option. Size the text box, then place your cursor in the upper left of the text box and choose Insert > Table. This works for me. You can now move the text box (with table inside) anywhere in the drawing table. (I like to turn on the little paragraph symbol on the Home tab to make it easier to see where in the text box to insert the table) Have fun.
