Why are there no limit orders for stock trading?



I just read this: 

Can I add a stop or limit to a share dealing position?


No, you can only add stops or limits to spread bets or CFD trades. 


Why on earth is this?
I would actually expect a stop loss and take profit level to be available to either a market or limit order.
It is a very strange omission for a platform such as this.

In my quest for a paper trading account that allows proper SL and TP levels to be set I have found:
IB (only works with a very ugly Trader Workstation desktop app, that cannot remember login/password)
Trading212 (has limit orders but no simultaneous SL/TP - it will only allow a sell order to the value of a position that is already filled)

Why is such a fundamental necessity of risk management missing here?
