Create your text frame and shape it, should work. In the properties palette's
shape tab there's a button from where you can pick different types of shapes.
If that's not enough you can click on the edit shape button which will pop up
a shape edit tool thingy you can use to make your custom shapes. It's also
possible first to draw a polygon of desired shape and right click on it and
convert to text frame.
