I'm quite sure that the Epson Stylus Photo RX595 is not a postscript
printer and it would be helpful if you followed the thread a little
closer.

I was asking the OP to check if other programs offered letter & legal
sizes when choosing to print to isolate whether this was an OOo issue. I
thought that was fairly clear.

I surely don't know whether the Epson Stylus Photo RX595 actually offers
to print a legal size sheet since it is a photo printer, it seems
conceivable that it is not an offered print size - I simply don't know.
