Why can't I export code when I'm a paying member?

I tried to export my code and I am a paying member on the CMS plan. I thought I could take my code with me? It says I need to update to another plan for another $20 a month to own my code? Is there away way i can export my code? Thank you

Export is a function of the workspace plan, not the site hosting plan.
I don’t know why, seems to me if you’re paying for hosting you should be able to export, too.

But in general they’re intended for different workflows, you wouldn’t usually host and export the same site.

Might contact support and see what they can do.
