Ah, yes. For a non-repeating task, it's repetition:missing value.
So just duplicate the task, then set its repetition to missing value

Very useful! I was expecting dates/times to advance by the set amount, which seems 'normal' in the analog world.
So "8 hours" would advance 07:33:33 to 15:33:33, not 16:00:00.

Not that it is that great.

omnifocus:///task/<taskID>

I just discovered how to make those links.
Is this documented somewhere, or is it a 'hidden gem'?

Is this part of Omnifocus, or the OS??

In addition, review interval is also a repetition interval. But the 'fixed' property is meaningless here: this is always a fixed interval - at least, it is shown as such in the Inspector.
