  1. I think I found an error :
    Page 21 should be :

    for figure in context.space_data.background_images:

    instead of

    for figure in

    Of course, following this article, means I am not a authority in Blender Python.
    Maybe "figure" should also be replaced by "image".

  2. filip: you are absolutely correct. I've just checked the original article I submitted to the magazine and they've (incorrectly) changed every instance of background_images and image to background_figures and figure. I'll contact them and ask why they changed it.

    For reference, here is a link to the article as I submitted it (though I've converted it from a word document to pdf for ease of viewing):
    As far as I can tell, this should work correctly.

  3. One final note: the original article was submitted on June 5th, so that's quite a while ago. Especially when compared to the speed at which the python api changes.
