# Algorithmicx - Indentation problem when using \skipnumber to suppress line numbers?

I need to suppress the line numbers for \For loops and \If statements in my algorithm. I found the \skipnumber command online which does the job, however for some reason it messes up the indentation of my next \State statement. I also see that for some reason there is no space between the \Else statement and the text. I have attached a screenshot of the problem and the relevant code. Any ideas? \documentclass[12pt]{report}

\usepackage[chapter]{algorithm}
\usepackage[noend]{algpseudocode}

\makeatletter
\newcommand*{\skipnumber}{%
{\renewcommand*{\alglinenumber}{}\State #2}%
\makeatother

\State \textbf{Apply threshold of $\pm t$ around centre gradient value ($G_c$) in a $3\times3$ neighbourhood to determine $S_{GLTP}$ codes for the image}
\skipnumber{\ForAll{gradient magnitude value ($G_i$) around $G_c$}
\If{$G_i > G_c + t$} $S_{GLTP}(i)\gets+1$
\ElsIf{$G_i < G_c - t$}  $S_{GLTP}(i)\gets-1$
\Else $S_{GLTP}(i)\gets 0$
\EndIf
\EndFor}
\Statex \textbf{repeat} for each $3\times3$ neighbourhood

\skipnumber{\ForAll{$S_{GLTP}(i)$ value in a $3\times3$ neighbourhood}
\If {$S_{GLTP}(i)>0$} $S_P(i)\gets1$ \& $S_N(i)\gets0$
\ElsIf {$S_{GLTP}(i)<0$} $S_P(i)\gets0$ \& $S_N(i)\gets1$
\Else $S_P(i)\gets0$ \& $S_N(i)\gets0$ \EndIf
\EndFor}
\Statex $P_{GLTP}= \sum_{i=0}^{7} S_P(i)\times 2^i$
\Statex $N_{GLTP}= \sum_{i=0}^{7} S_N(i)\times 2^i$

First of all, \ForAll is defined within algpseudocode as a block structure with a Start, but no End:

\algdef{S}[FOR]{ForAll}{\algorithmicforall\ #1\ \algorithmicdo}%


This is important to note, as it plays with the indentation. So, we redefine it to have an End:

\algdef{SE}% Start and End
[FOR]% New block
{ForAll}% Creates \ForAll{<stuff>}
{EndForAll}% Creates \EndForAll
% One argument passed to \ForAll
{\algorithmicforall\ #1\ \algorithmicdo}% Text for \ForAll
{\algorithmicend\ \algorithmicforall}% Text for \EndForAll
\algtext*{EndForAll}% Remove text associated with \EndForAll


and also remove the End text (since you're using the noend package option). The above combination is similar to

\algdef{SN}[FOR]{ForAll}{EndForAll}{\algorithmicforall\ #1\ \algorithmicdo}%


Next, I redefine the way your \skipnumber macro works. Instead of supplying a number, let's define two switches - \stopnumbering and \resumenumbering - that deactivates and reactivates line numbering. It makes the codes more readable, I think. \documentclass{article}

\usepackage{algorithm,amsmath}
\usepackage[noend]{algpseudocode}

\let\oldState\State
\newcommand*{\stopnumbering}{%
\let\olditem\item
\renewcommand{\item}[]{\olditem[]}%
\let\State\Statex}
\let\item\olditem
\let\State\oldState}

\algdef{SE}[FOR]{ForAll}{EndForAll}{\algorithmicforall\ #1\ \algorithmicdo}{\algorithmicend\ \algorithmicforall}%
\algtext*{EndForAll}

\begin{document}

\begin{algorithm}[h!]
\begin{algorithmic}
%SOME OTHER STUFF HERE
\State \textbf{Apply threshold of $\pm t$ around centre gradient value ($G_c$) in
a $3\times3$ neighbourhood to determine $S_{\text{GLTP}}$ codes for the image}

\stopnumbering
\ForAll{gradient magnitude value ($G_i$) around $G_c$}
\If{$G_i > G_c + t$} $S_{\text{GLTP}}(i) \gets +1$
\ElsIf{$G_i < G_c - t$}  $S_{\text{GLTP}}(i) \gets -1$
\Else{} $S_{\text{GLTP}}(i) \gets 0$
\EndIf
\EndForAll

\Statex \textbf{repeat} for each $3 \times 3$ neighbourhood

\State \textbf{Compute positive ($P_{\text{GLTP}}$) and negative ($N_{\text{GLTP}}$) $\text{GLTP}$
coded image representations from $S_{\text{GLTP}}$ values}
\stopnumbering

\ForAll{$S_{\text{GLTP}}(i)$ value in a $3 \times 3$ neighbourhood}
\If {$S_{\text{GLTP}}(i)>0$} $S_P(i) \gets 1$ \& $S_N(i) \gets 0$
\ElsIf {$S_{\text{GLTP}}(i)<0$} $S_P(i) \gets 0$ \& $S_N(i) \gets 1$
\Else{} $S_P(i) \gets 0$ \& $S_N(i) \gets 0$
\EndIf
\EndForAll

\Statex $P_{\text{GLTP}} = \sum_{i=0}^{7} S_P(i) \times 2^i$
\Statex $N_{\text{GLTP}} = \sum_{i=0}^{7} S_N(i) \times 2^i$
\Statex \textbf{repeat} for each $3\times 3$ neighbourhood
\end{algorithmic}
\end{algorithm}
