Search by Repeating Type: Weekly, Monthly, etc

Hello - Is there a way to search for all tasks that are set to repeat weekly? or monthly?

I have a Smart List that shows me everything that will be due or start on Saturday. I also have a lot of tasks that repeat every Saturday. I would like to exclude those weekly repeating tasks from my Smart List. Is there a way to do that without removing all repeating tasks?

I know I can create a #weekly tag, tag all of my weekly repeating tasks with it, and then filter out that tag, but I'd rather not have to do that.

I appreciate any help on this.

The only parameter is isRepeating:true.
So, you could exclude ALL repeating tasks

NOT isRepeating:true

You might try this. I'm not sure if this is a valid construct.

NOT (isRepeating:true AND due:Saturday)

Thank you, azclaire. I am aware of isRepeating:true and isRepeating:false, but as you said, that would exclude or include all repeating tasks.

Your suggestion of NOT(isRepeating:true AND due:Saturday) gets me pretty close, but there would still be some other repeating tasks (monthly, for example) that I'd want.

I'm thinking I'll need to tag my repeating tasks and use that to filter.

Thanks, again, for your help!
