Can't draft extrude more than 0.3 degrees

I changed something early on in my document and now an 'extrude'-feature won't generate because adding draft isn't possible. The draft in the feature was 0.6 degrees, now I can't move it past 0.3 degrees or the feature doesn't rebuild anymore.

The feature is called 'mounting rib front part'. Does anyone know what prevents Onshape from adding more draft here?

    Try using the draft feature instead of extruding with draft. Here is an image of what I am referring to.

    Thanks! That allowed me to see what part was the problem. I did the draft in multiple features and now I can get the angle way higher than the previous 0.3 degree limit. Still don't understand why there's a limit to the amount of draft when doing large parts in one go.
