If you take fighter or paladin first, then add the cloistered cleric class you keep your proficiencies.

Not sure why. I was hoping the latest update would fix it, but alas it did not.
Hi Crimdac,

Thanks for the report. This is a core issue. It has been reported, but I'm not aware of any time-table for a resolution.

In the meantime, I did some playing around. You can create a workaround with an adjustment. I recommend creating a new user file and adding an adjustment (or two) with a script like this:

doneif (field[pIsOn].value = 0)

foreach pick in hero from BaseFeat where "thingid.fArmShield & Helper.FirstCopy"
   perform eachpick.delete[Helper.FtHide]
   perform eachpick.delete[Helper.FtDisable]
Run this script at Pre-Levels/100.

Note that this script is for Shield Proficiency only. You can widen it to include other feats as needed by altering the section in quotes. For example:

foreach pick in hero from BaseFeat where "(thingid.fArmShield | thingid.fArmHeavy) & Helper.FirstCopy"
