The chart is written in a key-agnostic way.
Select your key and click any of the chord names in any of the boxes to see what each chord resolves to in the specified key.
The blue squares (down the center) have chords that are in the currently selected key. These are your primary chords! The green squares (on the edges) may or may not be in key, but can be used occasionally to create depth/tension, etc.

you may find some of the other links on this site helpful

Mike, I posted this maybe 8 or 9 years ago. I have a copy always in my songwriting notebooks. It’s one of the best tools for writing consonant chord progressions that exists, in my opinion.

I just reposted a similar and simpler chord map that mostly consists of what you see as blue squares in this post in the Songwriters forum:

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
