I ran into this a week or so ago too, just before going away for a few days. When I returned I remembered that since the last time I had added a new curve I had upgraded from El Capitan to Sierra. Even though I was running the latest version of QTR, I decided to try reinstalling it. Problem solved.

Apple has really tightened down on the ability for apps to write files to some of the system folders such as the ones that are used to hold the printer files that QTR generates when you do an install. Try downloading the newest version of QTR and doing a fresh installation. Failing that, I have had to manually open the permissions on some of the /Library folders that QTR needs to write to.
