I add MY_CUSTOM_FIELD to my post and I changed permalink setting like that /%MY_CUSTOM_FIELD%/%postname%/ but it is not working

It would be a great plugin because only this one works for me with Custom Fields tag. It gives the tag of Custom Field to generate permalink using most popular WP Permalink plugins, but after successful permalink generation, when you click on it - there is an error because no post found. ACF Permalinks plugin, which is analog of this one, works reversed - it doesn't give Custom Field tag in the most popular plugins, only in ones which don't fit my needs. But the post is found after permalink generation. WP version: 5.2.2

This plugin gives me the ability to add my ACF fields into permalinks. I realize this is a pretty non-standard way to construct permalinks but in trying to create ultra short permalinks, this saved me. Thanks so much. The only thing that would make this better, is if I could leave the Post ID out of the permalink, but that's asking a lot.
