Controlling dimension arrows
You can control the appearance and size of arrowheads or tick marks placed
at the ends of dimension lines. Any changes you make affect the current dimension
style. The arrowheads you choose display in the image tile on the right side
of the Dimension Settings dialog box.
You can choose from a number of arrowhead types. You can specify different
arrowheads for each end of a dimension line and leader lines. The Starting arrow
corresponds to the first extension line; the Ending arrow corresponds to the
second extension line. Blocks defined in the drawing also display in the three
Arrowhead lists as user-defined arrows. You can use these blocks to create and
assign your own arrowheads.
The Arrow Size value determines the size of the arrowhead, measured in drawing
units. You can also use tick marks instead of arrowheads.

Click the Arrows tab.
In the Starting Arrowhead or Ending Arrowhead list, click to select the
start or end arrowhead, respectively.
