Sometimes a mix of components, like switches, buttons and lights, do not fit together very practical on a circuit board. Reasons may be, that their tops do not match equally. A solution for this problem can be to mount the high components not on the board itself but 'stick' these through the circuit board and then connect it electrically with nearby pads. The preferable solution for this would be creating a components with a footprint containing the cut-out. Since I have not found something like this, the workaround for this is likely to create pads on the board and add manually a 'internal cutout' for each components. More information on this can be seen here:
Practically for this, do the following
