Thanks for solving my puzzle :)
I am still relatively new to solving/ setting cryptics, so feedback is always welcome.

    umm... 4d4DSavoury flavour when fellow does a headstand between solver and setter (5) **There is a typo here! The second letter of the grid entry (incorrectly spelled) is ‘N’**[-----] sounds like its supposed to be umami?? now i think i know why i couldnt get the parse

      You’re right! I’ve added a note into the puzzle to amend it as much as I can.

      You caught me with "B" for "second" (letter, I presume) in 1D1DLeave second measurement (6)[------]. I think 4D4DSavoury flavour when fellow does a headstand between solver and setter (5) **There is a typo here! The second letter of the grid entry (incorrectly spelled) is ‘N’**[-----] is a typo for UMAMI and I missed the parse on 5D5DEnglish learner comes first to sign up (6)[------]. Good fun everywhere else; I especially liked 8A8AInvolves insides not right (7)[-------].

        Thank you for an entertaining cryptic. I think that 4D4DSavoury flavour when fellow does a headstand between solver and setter (5) **There is a typo here! The second letter of the grid entry (incorrectly spelled) is ‘N’**[-----] should be UMAMI. 1D1DLeave second measurement (6)[------] I am unsure about "leave" as a synonym for BOUNCE1DLeave second measurement (6)[------]; I can't find it in Chambers. "Dismiss" might have been a better choice.

          Bounce is a slang word, so I’m not sure that it would be in Chambers. I’m interested in using contemporary slang to make puzzles more accessible to younger people. Once you start thinking about it, there are hundreds of abbreviations and words with strange double meanings in contemporary language. It’s perfect for cryptics; although Chambers wouldn’t help to solve puzzles that used it!
