How do I change a project's Field Context (aka Custom Field Configuration)

I have a custom field select-box called Division. I have two configuration schemes each used to set the default selection based on project for all issue types. Half of the projects are in one configuration, the other half in the other configuration. 

One of my projects has changed Divisions, so I want to move it from one configuration to the other. When I go to the Edit Configuration screen, the project is not available in the project list. I assume because it is already in use in the other configuration. However I can't seem to remove it from it's current configuration. 

Here are instructions to configure contexts for custom fields: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/configuring-a-custom-field-802592532.html#Configuringacustomfield-configureConfiguringacustomfield

The instructions do not say how to move a project to a different configuration/context once it has been added to one. 

What is the correct way to associate this project with a different configuration?

Go to the Project settings view and under the Summary option click on the scheme in the Fields section. You can then change the scheme for that project. (Actions -> Use a different scheme)

Thanks Tom. Your instructions are to change the Field Configuration Scheme, but I want to change the Custom Field Configuration Scheme aka Field Context.
