Georeference Export Issues

I seem to be posting daily atm! :p

I just want to raise an issue with importing/exporting from scenes using the Australian MGA projection system (GDA 1994 MGA Zone 56). All of my .shp files which are currenlty projected in MGA Zone 56 always default to a custom coordinate system when imported and do not use the predefined coord system. When I then try to export models as COLLADA from the MGA scene they do not end up in the correct geo-position ( In fact they are not even positioned on the globe? ).

I can convert the .shp files to another coord system ( say World Mercator WGS84 ) and then export into the correct position but this results in subtle errors to the shapefiles positioning which is not permissible for my uses.

1. Is there a way I can force CE to use the predefined coord system and not default to a custom system?
2. Are there any known issues with the way CE handles the Australia National Grids?
