If children are marked as being step-children of a couple, then Family Historian's narrative report for the parents (at least) does not show that the children are step-children.
It is pretty clear what's going one when looking at the report for the biological parent, for the children occur twice.
It is not obvious what's going one when looking at the report for the step-parent - the dates can appear odd if the step-parent is younger than the biological parent because it looks like the step-parent had children when they were improbably young.
FH should show that children are step-children, adopted, etc, in reports (I have not checked which reports are deficient - I know the Individual Narrative is).
The optionality might also need to have degrees of optionality - would you want to see explicit mention of birth parents? (because that can be explicitly set - probably so if you've gone to the trouble to set it, but probably best to ask) - would you want to see a note where the value is not completed? (probably 99.99% of values).
PS - and something I have only just noticed... FH allows you to set the relationship for _each_ parent. Well, I didn't know that... Use the "more options" instead of just entering "s" for "step" and you can then specify whether it's the father or mother who has a step-child. What a good idea. Now I only have to find those step-children where I've already set "s" against both parents!
