English term or phrase: tab paper
The sentence in which the term appears is not relevant, so I will explain the context.

The term appears in a list of types of paper supported by a printer. I noticed that the term in English can have a couple of meanings and I'm not sure which is the right meaning in this context.

De acord cu Coja,

Tab paper: poate însemna hartie de format tabloid
dar si foaie cu portativ (9x12)

Dar, dupa cercetari, am descoperit ca mai poate insemna si fotografii sau cartoane cu eticheta pe margine.

Traducerea corecta va rezulta din context.

In lipsa contextului... nu vad cum se poate pronunta cineva definitiv.

fotografii sau cartoane cu eticheta pe margine.

Dacă vrei să numeşti acele etichete indexuri... se poate.
Cu indexuri, nu cu "indecşi".

Notes to answerer
Asker: Mi-e teamă că nu e vorba nici de foaie cu portativ, nici de tabloid... Am găsit mai târziu în textul sursă un context care indică faptul că acele "tabs" pot fi şi ele tipărite. Deci cred că e vorba despre "secret version no. 3" şi anume hârtie cu un fel de indecşi... Mulţumesc oricum! :)

disagree  Claudia Coja: Nici vorbă...
17 hrs
  -> Chiar "nici vorba"... nu poti spune

agree  Florin Ioan Ular: de ce nu, „tab paper” poate să fie foarte bine hârtie pentru portative: „This blank tab paper is designed to print a 10-stave page with 6 lines on each stave... the requirement for writing down guitar tab music”

  -> are si ea dreptate, dar neavand contextul... mai poate insemna si hartie etichetata.
