    Page background interferes with entering text


      I'm a rank newbie with InDesign CS6. I have a document preset for 3 columns. If I enter text with Shift-Click, the text flows properly from column to column the way I want. But if I apply a page background color first (using frame tool and fill), then I can't enter text into the column but instead it goes into the background space. And if I enter text first and then apply a page background color, it covers the text and I can't do Object-Arrange-Send to back because that function is not active. What can I do to get a page background color AND be able to enter text into a column so that it flows automatically into the next columns?
