I would like to turn off antialiasing for text. I know it makes it ugly but I have a very good reason: I'm working on a super low-res image where I can only use 8 colors. For this reason I want to disable all the grayscale and alpha pixels the anti-aliasing introduces.

Is there an easy way to do this in Pixelmator? Since a lot of people use Pixelmator for pixel art I'd assume Pixelmator would support this in one way or another.
