I couldn't find answer to this question anywhere on the internet either. But here's how to solve this problem:

  1. Edit text inside the shape.
  2. While editing, open context menu, choose "Text".
  3. Check options: "Resize shape to fit text" and/or "Word wrap text in shape".

"Fit width/height to text" options will still be grayed out, but you should achieve what you want.
