Is there any way to make shapes conform to the pixel grid? All my squares are fuzzy. See zoomed in video here:

Here are my project properties:

I've been asking this question recently as well. It's driving me nuts. As far as I'm concerned there are no half-pixels.
Long story short: No answer yet. So not possible.

Very frustrating indeed.

As a workaround, try setting the Falloff of your Shape Fill to 1000.

This will crop off the semi-transparent antialiasing pixels.

You will however need to increase the dimensions of your shape slightly to compensate.

Also make sure that the shape position Transform isn't using fractions of a pixel.

Not a perfect solution but it might be of use to you.

Note that if you are using anything other than perfect squares or rectangles you will get stepping on any non-straight edges because you will have effectively turned off the anti-aliasing.
