How do I capture ALL of a StoredProcs "Explain SQL" output?

When I run "Explain SQL", I get a listbox-like display.
When I try to Highlight, Copy and Paste ...
the capture stops at a line with little squares embedded in the line and the remaining text is NOT captured.

little squares appear where I have X's below

          SQL402B Table 3XXXXXX used in hash join step 1.

And capture stops ...

I'm using iSeries Navigator V5R3M0
