I just started writing a new document in Pages. I entered the title and then created a diagram below the title using some shapes available in the Pages. Now I need to write a paragraph starting from below the diagram I created. I cannot move the cursor below the diagram. When I press the return key, the cursor moves while shifting the diagram down. Clicking or double clicking on the area below the diagram does't do anything. I need help!

Have you tried creating a new text block below the diagram?

The simple solution to this problem is to use Microsoft Word! Pages, especially the latest version, sucks everything suckable. Spend some money and get a real word processor.

The solution is simple. Apple Page being relatively new to other word processors, some people might say that Apple Page sucks – because they are not familiar with this new word processor. How can one argue with another non-developer Windows guy when they say MacOS X is not user-friendly?

SOLUTION
Image/Figure has some default settings regarding Text Wrapping around them, in Arrange tab.
By default, it's set to "Automatic".

Since, you want your image to be fixed after your title –
1. Select your image
2. In the Arrange tab, change the Text Wrap property to 'Above and Below'
3. In addition, you want the cursor to jump below the image. Set the Object Placement property to 'Stay on Page'.

Hope this helps.
