Notepad: One letter of the alphabet has been removed from each clue every time it appears in the clue. If you remove this letter from the clue's answer, the remaining letters will themselves spell a word, which is to be entered in the grid. For example, the clue "Be a sni*ch" would suggest "Be a snitch" with a missing T, leading to the answer TATTLE - which, with the T's removed, would be entered in the grid as ALE. Every answer is a word, name, familiar phrase or other regular crossword answer.
