Default Automatically adjusting shape to cell, or any other equivalent solution

Is possible to anchor a "drawing shape" (the blue rounded rectangles) to a table cell borders?





I need the Shape to adjust his position and size inside the cell, so when the cell width and height changes, I don't need to manually adjust the shape.

If is possible to just round the cell rows and set his background color, it would be an equivalent solution.


I cannot write text inside the form, because I need to add fields, and fields cannot be used inside the shape's text.

What you're asking isn't possible.

Why not simply shade the relevant cells? That way, the shading will always match the cell size.
