Worked for me in the latest version of LibreOffice, which LO version and OS are you using?

Sorry - should have made it clearer. Not at that computer now. Running on the latest version of Linux Mint and the latest version of Calc. On my Mac running Mohave 10.14.2 and Calc running it does not work either.

Can't insert shapes in a cell, but in the document.

Once selected the desired shape from the menu, drag in the document to draw the shape. Then you can anchor it to a cell (menu Format - Anchor - To Cell). Can change size and position after.
