Bevel Buttons

Bevel buttons—due to their ability to have square or rounded corners, and to display text, an icon, or another image—once served many roles on macOS. Used in a window’s main content area, bevel buttons filled a need for things like push buttons, groups of radio buttons or checkboxes, or, when badged with a downward arrow, pop-up buttons.

Avoid using bevel buttons. Bevel buttons are no longer used in modern Mac apps. Instead, use push buttons, checkboxes, pop-up buttons, radio buttons, or segmented controls.
