The text has to be in a text box for this to be enabled.

After you choose "insert text box", you may see a box appear that says "Create your drawing here". Ignore this box. You have to click in your document where you want your text box. Once the text box appears, you have to select the text box by clicking once on its edge. Then you should be able to set the text direction.
