    This is easy.  First go to menu "preferences" "configure cura...".  Among the many checkboxes on the general page, uncheck "Automatically drop models to the build plate".


    Now you can move your model up with the move tool that you show in your first photo.  You can also move the model *down* below the bed and it will chop off the bottom of your model which I find very helpful for parts that are not quite flat on the bottom.
