This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 16 Words: 77, Blocks: 40 Missing: {JQWXZ} This is puzzle # 12 for Mr. Muller. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Notepad: Four answers in this puzzle are missing the same eight-letter clue - a single word that can be spelled from the eight circled letters. When the puzzle is done, connect the circled letters in order with a line, and you will get an outline of the object the word names.
Jim Horne notes:

The missing clues are all UMBRELLA. Spell that word by connecting the dots letter by letter to see the shape.
