Default Prism layers retraction around sharp edges

I have the geometry that you see in the image. Where the mesh gets refined, the prism layer thickness retracts. Does anyone have any idea how i can fix that? I need a constant prism layer thickness around the whole surface. I tried changing a lot of parameters but nothing has worked so far.
Thank you in advance.

hi, maybe you can try to toggle the check box in your refinement operations, where you can find settings about prism layer thickness.
