Problem with a layer in Illustrator not showing up on the left

This looked fine before, but I think I may have accidentally moved something. Now the left side of the graphics is being hidden for some reason. Almost seems like some kind of bounding box got shrunk or something. The graphics on the left exist, but I can't move anything to let them show more. Any ideas what I'm seeing here? I'm relatively new to Illustrator, btw. You can see in the image below the left side of the yellow circle is not showing nor the blue rectangles and text below it. Is there some point I need to move? BTW, this is for a 4'x8' poster.

There are many clipping paths in the file.

 

Release them one by one and you should then get the desired result without the invisible parts.

Various reasons possible.

 

Can you share the Illustrator file for inspection?

Yes I can, thanks. There should be a 2" border all around. I had a black box designating that that I was going to delete before printing. Tried to attach it with the drag and drop but it kept kicking it back. Used some other space I have. AI zipped file

You can release clipping paths in the Object menu.

 

Object menu > Clipping Mask > Release

 

You may have to do it a couple of times.

That was it. I had to release clipping path on a few levels then ungroup a few times too. After that I could resize the left boxes to where there should have been. Don't know how I even did that or what to do to prevent it. Thanks for bailing me out, Kurt!
