Hi,

 

The following lines are from its specs:

Scan technology CIS
Scan file format PDF, BMP, PNG, TIF, JPG
Scan input modes Front-panel scan, Front-panel copy, HP Scan software
Scan size maximum Flatbed: 8.5 x 11.7 in (216 x 297 mm)

Source:  http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/newsroom/press_kits/2013/consumerproducts/HP_Envy_4500_eAiO.pdf

 

Legal size paper: " legal size paper: Paper measuring 8.5 inches wide and 14 inches long, used almost exclusively in the UK, US, and Commonwealth countries."

 

From two sizes above, the answer is: no, you can't.

 

Regards.

To scan legal size, you need an ADF scanner (for example Officejet 4630) or one with a larger glass (for example, Officejet Pro 8600).

Thank you all for your response. I think I misread the fine print somewhere.

I found the source of the confusion. The Fry's Electronics ad says that I can scan legal size documents on the 4500. Clearly they are mistaken.
