I'm trying to enable user to choose article alternative layout in the article frontpage editing form. I add this code below to [root]/templates/protostar/html/com_content/form/edit.php

<?php echo $this->form->renderField('article_layout','attribs'); ?>

But it shows nothing in the frontend editing form. Any idea how to make it works?
