Mac pushbutton cannot receive focus?

I haven’t tested this on Windows yet, but it seems that I cannot tab to a pushbutton on the Mac.
Has this always been the case?

Yes. Pushbuttons on Mac do not get focus unless you turn on the system-wide accessibility feature to allow it.

Because I had to google to find where they moved it to this time:

If you want to set focus on a button without having the user change his system wide preferences, you can lay it over a canvas of the same size, set the canvas to accept focus so it shows the focus ring.

Put the canvas in the tab order.

If you want to click the button with the keyboard, use button.push.

Yes, I was in the process of doing just that. I decided I will tell my customer that they should enable it properly for Macs.
