    InDesign CS5: How to put overlay pattern on shapes?

    mczambon75 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      for a project in InDesign I created - using the rectangle tool - a background for an object. To make it nicer I added a bunch of effects like shadow, etc. Now I would like than to add an overlay pattern on it (a grid). In Photoshop this can be easily done within the effects, but in InDesign I can't figure out how to do it or whether this is possible at all.

      I could use a dirty trick to achieve my goal, but since I need to replicate this a lot of of pages with all kind of different shapes and sizes I'm looking for a clean way to do this.

      I'm using InDesign CS5.

       

      Can somebody help me ?

       

      Thanks a lot in advance!

      This is what I am trying to achieve:
