Hi Thomas,
I've asked the same question about 2 weeks ago and have been told that it's 
currently not supported. There are 2 ways:
-Make an extra frame and change the size of this frame
-Draw an extra frame and move it to the right side that it overlaps your "main"-
textframe and the choose "text flaws around".

I personally have choosen another way: the normal text is in "Blocksatz" and 
the quotation only left aligned ("Flattersatz") so it also looks ok.
This feature should come in 1.3
