The "project type" is a template, not a persistent setting. When you create a project, you select a type and get a project with settings (i.e. "schemes") for that type, but it then has no effect past that.
To change a project from one type to another, just go to project admin and change all the schemes.
Update, for anyone else who lands here, this was an answer for JIRA 6 and below. In JIRA 7, it's under Project Administration -> Actions -> Change project type
Sorry I'm asking for a more literal step-by-step. The interface is not intuitive and I can't figure out what to change. For example, (1) get to your project admin page (2) click on "Project Template" (3) click on the "pencil" to edit (4) etc etc.
Can you please give me the step by step?
As I said, the project templates only exist for project creation. Once it is created, they have no function, they're just a set of "use these settings when creating the project" To change the "type", you need to work out what schemes you want to use and then change the project to use them.

While this sounds very helpful for JIRA 7, I can not find the "Change project type" action on JIRA 7.1.0 for the life of me. I don't know if it moved again or if I am really this incapable... does anyone else see this problem?
EDIT: Ah, I see: I guess I can not yet change it during the evaluation period. My bad, sorry about the confusion. I'll change it as soon as we have the proper license then.
