Is there a way so that when I print, it lists a parent as a step parent and not the parent of a child? I do have the parent listed as step under relations, but it shows it when it is printed as parent.

The parentage report for one will show this provided that you have correctly set the relationship in the Person>Relationship tab

Unintended Consequences of Choosing Step-Child.

This is why I no longer select to add anyone as a step-child at the "Relationship Screen/View" of the person page.

Steps end up as descendants in descendant reports of step parents. If you have step-parent entered as such to a person in your file, that step-child will end up as a descendant in all descendant reports of all of the New England ancestors of that step-parent - and there will be no warning or caution that that person is not really a descendant.

Like with ancestor reports, you need to be careful that the natural parents are always the preferred, or you will end up with ancestral reports of the step-child showing non-blood ancestors as ancestors.

I just enter the multiple marriages and children of each marriage and do NOT classify anyone as a step-child (at the relationship screen) in my database.
