Yes "Can received focus" of the group is set to true.

The layer of the group was 4. If asked for the number of layers. The answer
was 179. If I set the layer of the group to 180, the insertion bar comes
back, but disappears in the fields that are not in the same group.

My conclusion is the following : the insertion bar is visible only in the
group with the highest layer. This means that if you want to show two fields
belonging to different groups with different layers, the insertion bar will
lack in one of them, unless you change the layer. Is it correct?
