Here is my work-flow: 1. Open blank, new file 2. Go to File menu>place, and in the dialog click on "Place". 3. I don't have to engage the move tool in order to manipulate the image. Sometimes the bounding box is obscured and dragging out the work area a tad will bring the corner and side handles in to view for access. If this does not work for you, suggest that you reset preferences to default. Go to Edit menu>Preferences and reset on next launch.

Are you trying to move/re-size a shape or text or a photo you have placed?

In Editor, go to File>new>blank file.  In the dialog under "Preset" there is an option for "International Paper." Here, you have the ability to select A4 paper. This will be your canvas. 

Next go to File>Place and point to the  file which you wish to place on the canvas 

You can manipulate the image with the corner handles of the bounding box
