Slight Antialiased/Transparent Edges

I am a part of a high school game development club, and I am using dotgrid to create many of the UI elements for our current game.  It's going great so far, except for one thing: because there is a thin layer of transparent pixels surrounding the edge of every shape in my .png renders, when I try to do things like fill a shape with a bucket tool, there is a very noticeable jagged separation between colored elements. Is there a way to turn off the antialiasing (I am just guessing that a slight AA effect is what's responsible for the semitransparent edges), or would I have to manually edit and recompile from source to get rid of the effect?

You'll want to get rid of the anti-alias in the html5 canvas element. It's definitely not something I would like to merge in the main build, but that's totally doable, you just need to pull the repo and set AA to false in the exporter :)

Thank you very much for the response. I'll try that out.
