    I figured it out for my particular situation (a heavy line drawing): I had to dig in a level deep into the drawing and noticed there were some leftover lines, I probably applied a clipping mask to at some point, that didn't seem to be showing whether I enabled or disabled their visibility. By just turning their visibility off, my drawing is fixed. The way I'm getting to these invisible lines for other drawing is using the black arrow (shorcut "V") and selecting approximately the white space outside of where they're showing up after I export or Save As... pdf. This will outline an invisible box that will surround most of my drawing. I then double click on the invisible box to dive into it, and then peruse through its sub-layers in the layer panel. These invisible unclipped lines seem to always be standing out (fingers crossed this keeps happening!) in their layer icon, and I disable their visibility. Conversely, I've had to delete chunks of my drawing, until I'm able to select the invisible box with the black arrow. ***This does not take away from it being a bug on Adobe's side because it's not a "what you see is what you get" experience! Perhaps test clipping mass on complex line drawings, or reach out to other users having this issue to share their file (I can't share mine because they're patent drawings)?***
