In Vespucci you have to search for "steps" to find the corresponding preset, not "stairs". Alternatively just add the tag directly, as suggested by yourself.

Outdoors they are steps, stairs are inside a building.

I'm not a native speaker and I'm not responsible for this preset or Vespucci. You can report it at https://github.com/MarcusWolschon/osmeditor4android/issues if you like.

@nicolas-raoul wikipedia says lots of things; it doesn't make it correct! In English English usage, "stairs" are generally indoor and the larger outdoor versions tend to be referred to as a "flight of steps" or just "steps". "highway=steps" is the tag that got used in OSM from the start (based on English usage). It would make sense for editors to know that things that people might call "stairs" are mapped as "highway=steps", so as scai suggests, I'd mention that fact in Vespucci's issues list.

@trig222: Wikipedia says "A stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs, or simply stairs is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stairs

Sorry, didn't realise that little icon deleted the comments
