Maybe because your OS is upgraded?
I am still on Mojave, weird why would they remove it?

I have that option in Catalina but I don't trust Apple making my PDF's if you've ever seen how saving a PDF from the print dialog or saving them from Preview can destroy them.

Tracy, Acrobat can do it, open 1 file / organize pages / ...menu - insert from file / select pages from second file

Yes... if you do this with nothing open, you can sort multiple pdfs before creation. It also sort of flight checks them to confirm that they are sympatico.
