In Onshape, what is the best way to edit something created on Catia v5?

Hi, so I have imported the .CATpart file and have a sketch with the object loaded but I can't seem to change the placement locations of the lines, is there a different way to do this? I am not adept at CAD, which is why I am having someone else do the heavy lifting (and they use Catia v5), please let me know the best method to take a model he creates and edit it. Thanks!

    @ stephen_brzykcy, if you import models created in any other CAD to Onshape, it will be like dump solid.We can't edit such sketches or any features by which model created.Only way to edit or modify the such model is modification tools like transform,Move face(offset,translate,Rotate),Delete face,Replace face and Modify fillet.
    By the help of above tools you can modify the model.

    Is there an import format that will allow me to edit and move elements of the model (like hole placements, etc.)? Thanks!
