When you click the mask in the Transparency panel you can see it in the Layers panel.

I closed and saved the project. By opening Illustrator the problem is solved, so it was apparently a bug.

Check the Transparency panel and try to click on the left icon. It look like you are selecting an Opacity mask.

I don't understand what you try to show, but did you check the Transparency panel?

Hello, thank you for your answer, in fact I notice that a layer has disappeared on the list of layers but on the other hand it remains visible in the image (it is the frame with a white gradient because it was a rectangle with opacity and clipping). I can't make it visible anymore, is this a bug?, Thanks in advance.

What you see in the Layers panel depends on what you select in the Opacity panel, the Opacity mask (right icon) or the masked objects (click the left icon)

I see one option in opacity panel (it's aspect panel i find it) but the real problem is for example that ctrl + Y see that the rectangle with white opacity in the center of the frame not exist, he has like desapear of the objects, it is the major problem i see, no possibilities to have access to option opacity for this rectangle because it's not more exist. But it's steel visible in the image on the center, it's a rectangle with part of it with a mask opacity created. I can try to repeat all the process to see if it's a bug or a mistake from me.

It's an opacity mask you applied to the clipping mask.

The dotted underline points to opacity masks.

Hello, thank you very much, i try this : When you click the mask in the Transparency panel you can see it in the Layers panel., but the layer don't want to appear, so i find an other solution : i must select the rectangle first ( the largest with green and blue inside), and then the transparency panel is opened with the opacity mask inside. Now i understand better. Here is the capture to show that the layer rectangle must be selected first; Thank you
