Resolution field on Screen but not available on Layout

I have added the Resolution field to my Screen but it doesn't appear for positioning on my Layout. Why would that be?

Because you really don't want the resolution on any layout screen.

JIra shows it automatically on view, as it's a system field, but you don't want to put it on an edit or create screen (controlled by layout) because you would end up resolving issues just by editing or creating them.

The only screen you should put resolution on is the workflow transition screen that is called when closing your issues.

The resolution field shouldn't be on ANY screen except the one presented when transitioning in the workflow where you want it set. It automatically appears on the issue details page.
