Had the same problem with imported dwg file. The dimension text and arrows were tiny.
Solved as follows
1.go to Drawing Preferences in Edit menu
2. select Drawing Unit from the General menu
3.change drawing units to 'mm, paper units to mm, Measurement system to Metric
4. select Dimension menu item
5. select Dimension Settings
6. select Dimension again
7. select Dimension Settings -should now display all options
8. click Restore to Default values button at top right hand of box
9. uncheck Keep proportions option
10. check Keep proportion options
11. click Apply button
12. close Drawing Preferences dialogue box
Dimension text and arrows ,at least for my drawing, were adjusted and displayed correctly
