Anh, the keybinding option you want is ‘Complete snippet’ and you need 
to set it to something other than Tab. I used the return key.

Also, note that there are different keybindings for the initial snippet 
completion and moving the cursor to the next position, if there are more 
than one %cursor% instances in the relevant snippets.conf line.

Best of luck,
