I am trying to help a colleague print something in legal size and I cannot
get yap to render it. As far as I can see, by using
Latex compiles it properly, but yap cuts off the page bottoms. I have
looked high and low in the online help file and paper size is nowhere
mentioned. Surely, yap is not limited to lettersize.

From dvips doc:
For a US letter size landscape document, the papersize would be:
An alternate specification of landscape:
- - -
So, letter size can be specified as:
Yap must use this, however additional "refresh" (F5) may be required.
I hate modern Yap's inability to specify ad-hoc paper size (this ability
existed up till MiKTeX 2.4). Maybe you will be able to convince
Christian to make the ability available again.

YAP doesn't handle all postscript instructions, it's a DVI previewer,
not a full postscript interpreter. To see you picture, convert the DVI
to PS and view it with GhostScript/GhostView/gv/...
