```Hi,

I am quite new to lilypond and stumbled over a question regarding trills. I'd like to use pitched trills which works quite well with something like:
```
\pitchedTrill b2  \startTrillSpan cis b \stopTrillSpan

```
However when I want to do a pitched trill over just one single note, I always get errors:
```
```
test.ly:34:17: warning: programming error: bounds of this piece aren't breakable.
```  \pitchedTrill b
\startTrillSpan cis \stopTrillSpan
```
```
```
For a pitched trill on a single note, try terminating the trill spanner on a spacer note:
```
\relative c '' {

\pitchedTrill e2\startTrillSpan fis d\stopTrillSpan % as usual

\pitchedTrill e2\startTrillSpan fis s2\stopTrillSpan % with spacer note

}

```
