I'm using tabnine and COC.

I have a ~/.vimrc with the following lines:

inoremap <expr> <C-j> pumvisible() ? "\<C-N>" : "j"                                                                                                       
inoremap <expr> <C-k> pumvisible() ? "\<C-P>" : "k" 

and they let me use CTRL+j/k to navigate the suggestions.

I saw that clicking the right arrow "chooses" the suggestion by tabnine, but couldn't bind it to anything (enter, space, etc.)

How to I do thatim

You can check :h :coc-completion for a mapping suggestion.

It goes like so:

inoremap <expr> <cr> pumvisible() ? "\<C-y>" : "\<CR>"

In popupmenu, <c-y> (ctrl-y), accepts the suggestion (see :h :popupmenu-keys).

I like ctrl-space better, and I want it to show the menu if it's not displayed yet, so I do:

inoremap <expr> <c-space> pumvisible() ? coc#_select_confirm() : coc#refresh()
