Draft angle on extruded text

Hi all,

This appears to be a problem to me. I have extruded some text, then added a draft angle to it. The center of the "A" has a draft that is going in the wrong direction. If I were to make a mold with this, it would not work. Hopefully, you can see the problem in the attached png file.

Is there an option somewhere that fixes this?

Have a great day,

Extrude the "A" as two objects. Use the opposite Draft Angle for the inside extrusion, then 3D Subtract.
