I am having the same problem. When I import/export a DGN file through ArcMap, the annotation comes out spatially distorted. I think the value for the font width is being taken from the overall physical width of the text element itself, and thus stretching it out.
This seems to be a bug?

we can import and export the text with the help of autocad map.
path of import and export in autocad.
Map, Tool, Import/Export....
it also distorts and expands spatially to where each CAD tile is 10s of time larger spatially than it should be, just because of the annotation. All the point, line and polygon elements of the CAD data export perfectly into place. This annotation problem occurs whether or not I have the projection for the GDB and data frame set correctly in ArcMap before export.
The change in font size might be from the reference scale. In the Environment Settings for the import tool, try setting the scale to what it was at when in CAD. Hope this helps!;)
Thanks for the response Sarah.
I tried running the import tool again based on the text scale set in MicroStation, which was "Full Size 1=1". I therefore used an import reference scale of 1.
Once I re-exported this to CAD, I continued to still see the same issue.
