This size is legal size, and most copiers and softwares have settings for it.
But I worked in a law firm a few years ago and never saw it being used.
Who still uses this size of paper??

All the time. Great for charts, like genealogy for example.

It makes for great 'in-house' printed 4 page pamphlets without having to go to 11 X 17. For office correspondence, 8.5 X 14 is seldom used, but for charts, graphs, presentations and such, it’s still popular.

I use it all the time as a nonprofit fundraiser, to present program budgets as attachments in funding requests.

The extra width saves us all some eyestrain!

Nice for printing wide spreadsheets as well.

Seems to me to most common users are real estate lawyers and lenders.

^^ Ditto.

I use it when I am working complex logic problems. The additional space on the page is excellent for a lot of things and genealogy trees would be so much easier on legal size paper.
