it's too complicated adjusting paper sizes in almost all MS office applications as there are hardly 8.5" x 13" in the selection.. what I do is, I compensate what is missing using the LEGAL SIZE paper... I usually add an additional 1 inch at the bottom margin for PORTRAIT and 1 inch at the right margin for LANDSCAPE (depending on the printer) that way you can select the legal size in the paper sizes in the printer...
