Giorgio, apart from the obvious problem, that Main.findMdiChild() is missing 
in your example :-|, and apart, that you didn't even tried to word your 
issue seriously, you simply should have given the error message a bit more 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "editor.py", line 102, in copy
AttributeError: 'QMdiSubWindow' object has no attribute 'copy'

You see, the method self.activeMdiChild() returns a QMdiSubWindow instance 
[looking up QMdiSubWindow in assistant], that has a widget() method:

    def copy(self):

    def paste(self):

eh voila, tutto functionari. (Excuse my pidgin italian..)

You did NOT do your homework well - you're given a detention for this.
