how to add multiple field configuration schemes to a project ?

I want to have 2 Issue types with different Field configurations in a Project. The first issue type works fine. When i add a second issue type (including issue type scheme, workflow, workflow scheme, screen, screen scheme, issue type screen scheme, field configuration, field configuration scheme) 

I can not add multiple field configuration schemes to a project. When i click on Actions->use-different-scheme, i can only choose the scheme for issue type 1 OR issue type 2, but i can't have 2 configuration schemes. 

How to add a second or more field configuration schemes to a project?

You don't have more than one scheme for a project, it doesn't make sense.  A field configuration scheme says "for this issue type in this project, use that field configuration".  The field configurations are a layer down and say "here's how the fields work"

I assume what you're trying to do is add a new field configuration for an issue type.  (e.g. making affected version mandatory in the project, but only for bugs).  To do that, add a new field configuration to the field configuration scheme.

Field configurations can be tied to issue type so a field configuration scheme can be made up of as many field configurations as you have issue types.
