TT stop orders

I entered a trade using the DOM with the stop orders for the configuration set to "stop:stop", but I noticed on the Orders-and-Positions summary that those stop orders were Stop-Limit orders with both the stop and limit prices set to the same price. Why am I getting Stop-Limit orders when I specified "Stop" orders?
If TT always uses Stop-Limit orders, how do I specify a different limit price offset for my exit stop orders than a stop-limit entry order?

This is explained here:

You can use Stop-Limit orders instead:

The documentation explains how to control the Limit offset.

How are you submitting the order?
