Accepted answer

you can access each button preference with something like this:

exporting: {
    buttons: {
        printButton: {
            symbol: 'circle'
        },
        exportButton: {
            enabled: false
        }    
    }
}

an expandable example with your custom button would be:

exporting: {
    buttons: {
        printButton: {
            enabled: false
        },
        exportButton: {
            enabled: false
        },
        custom: {
            symbol: 'diamond',
            x: -62,
            symbolFill: '#B5C9DF',
            hoverSymbolFill: '#779ABF',
            _titleKey: 'printButtonTitle',
            onclick: function () {
                alert('click!')
            }
        }
    }
}

if you just want to hide default custom buttons,you could simply use:

exporting: {
      buttons: {
        contextButton: {
          enabled: false
        },
        printButton: {
            enabled: false,
        },
      }
    }

If you want to use your own custom button or label you can use this:

exporting: {
      buttons: {
        contextButton: {
          enabled: false
        },
        exportButton: {
            text: `Chrome`,
            _titleKey: "yourKey",
            onclick:function(){
            alert('clicked Chrome');
            },
            x:-410
        },

        printButton: {
            enabled: false,
            text: `IE: `,
             _titleKey:"myKey",
            onclick: function () {
                alert('clicked IE');
            },
            x:-400,
            y:30
        },          
      }
    },

in this i have disabled default as well as printButton, you can use x and y to set the positions of the label. You can find my code in fiddle here : https://jsfiddle.net/m3yegczx/20/

If you are using a framework then you can hide by this way.

    HIOptions *options = [[HIOptions alloc]init];
    HIExporting *exporting = [[HIExporting alloc]init];
    exporting.enabled = [[NSNumber alloc] initWithBool:false];
    options.exporting = exporting;

As for current highcharts (7.2.1), you can hide them by setting option below

exporting: {
    buttons: {
        contextButton: {
            menuItems: ["downloadPNG", "downloadJPEG", "downloadPDF", "downloadSVG"]
        }
    }
}

It's not possible as an option, but you can hide the default buttons then create your own using html. Then you can bind your custom button as you need.

var chart = new Highcharts.Chart({

    chart: {
        renderTo: 'container'
    },

    credits: {
        enabled: false
    },

    xAxis: {
        categories: ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec']
    },

    series: [{
        data: [29.9, 71.5, 106.4, 129.2, 144.0, 176.0, 135.6, 148.5, 216.4, 194.1, 95.6, 54.4]        
    }],
        exporting: {
            enabled: false
        }
    });

For anyone else who is using a newer version of highcharts and the selected answer doesn't work, you need to use the below instead to hide the button.

exporting: {
        buttons: {
            contextButton: {
                enabled: false
            }    
        }
    }
