Welcome to the HP Community Forum.


According to the documentation,

Legal size paper, single side, supported as a Custom Size


User manual does not include how to load this larger paper - ?

So, not sure how this would work --

If the tray is happy with longer paper and left open, then maybe?


Suggestions / Ideas


  • Install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software
  • Create a Custom Paper Size form
  • Load the paper
  • Tray and Paper >> If possible, alert the printer to the paper size - See the User manual and / or the Embedded Web Server (EWS)
  • Set the Printing Preferences - Paper Size / type / other settings


NOTE:  When called from within printing software / applications, Printing Preferences might be called "Printer Properties" / "Shortcuts" / “More Settings” / “Properties” / "Printer Setup" / "Presets" or similar.
