Scheduled Transaction for "every 4 weeks"?

I have several recurring newspaper subscriptions that bill my credit card every 4 weeks. Quicken does not seem to have an option to set up a scheduled transactions for "every 4 weeks" or "every 28 days". The weekly option specifies a day of the week, and that cannot be turned off. 
Is there a way to do this?

    Hi @Joseph Witkin

    If I understand your question correctly - Quicken actually does allow you to setup scheduled bill transactions based on a number of weeks.  Here's a sample transaction that I have setup (see Snip below):



    Let me know if you have any followups.

    But my bills don’t come on the same day of the week, they come every 28 days.

    You can set a Reminder for Weekly / Every 4 weeks / on Wednesday. If you don't care what day of the week it is, you can pick any day, there is no need to turn that off.

    I guess every 28 days should be the same day of the week, huh? Duh…

    You can't "pick any day".  When you select Weekly the Start date and the day of the week selected are forced to match.  As in say it is on Thursday and I select 1/5/2022 as the start date, the day of the week will be changed to Wednesday.  And the other way around is true, if I then change it to Thursday Quicken will force the start date to be 1/6/2022.
