"Repeat every" versus "Defer another"

OK, as a long time OmniFocus user, this has always bugged me. Repeating actions can be set at “repeat every” or “defer another” n days/weeks/whatever. What exactly is the difference between these two? I can’t find anything in the OF documentation discussing this.


The date/time that a “repeat every” item is completed has no effect on the next iteration of the item. “Due again” and “defer another” items’ next iterations are relative to the completion date/time of the previous.
