Is there any error warning?

Maybe there is a clipping mask somewhere in it?

No error warning, just is not possible to drag it.. it comes back to the artboard back. When I go to Object - Clipping Mask ... this option I can not do click it doesnt allow me to click in Clipping Mask.. So I do not think it has. I put in Swatches Release Clipping Mask , and the pattern put himself in Outline and, now i can not get back to my pattern

That was a tough one. Some of the objects had patterns applied to their strokes. You can see that in Window > Document info when you set it to "Objects"

In there it has 45 "Muster Objekte". Those are patterns in German.

 

I could search for them using a plugin, because those patterns weren't in the swatches panel. That is possible, you can delete pattern swatches and the patterns stay in the object.

I adjusted your file and now it's working: https://shared-assets.adobe.com/link/6caaa95f-ea33-4661-77fe-891fb857f218

The color of the dark stroke of the red berries is not a color fill, but it is a pattern fill. And that is not possible in a pattern.

 

The dialog box in my screenshot is the plugin FindReplace by Astute Graphics.

If you select your objects and choose: Object > Pattern > Make,  you will get a warning about objects containing patterns. But there are no (visible) patterns in your file.

It looks like the stroke in your red ovals contains the mystery pattern.

Select one of them and go Select > Same > Stroke color and replace it with the color used for the background. 

It should work after that.

Thank you for the help. When I go to Select - Same - Stroke color, it makes a boundary box smaller as the all pattern. What does it mean this mistake? Patterns cannot contain anything painted with a pattern. I only put color inside.

Did you select one of those ovals and go Select > Same > Stroke color and replace it with the color used for the background?

Hi Renata,

I would strongly suggest that you get some introductory lessons in Illustrator. You will have a hard time learning by doing when dealing with these kind of complex tasks and complex designs. You could just read the documentation (it has video too) or you could take classes at LinkedIn Learning (it's available in some public libraries as well) or you could take classes at a trainiong center.

 

Documentation with videos: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html

 

I have recorded some overview trainings, but they just cover a range of subjects rather briefly: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVqhHu3CSohVhofyDlCIh3Z-Qk8qSmMqZ
